Early life[edit] Eusébio
Eusébio
was born in the Mafalala neighborhood, Lourenço Marques (now Maputo), Portuguese Mozambique
Portuguese Mozambique
on 25 January 1942. His parents were Laurindo António da Silva Ferreira, a white railroad worker from Malanje, Angola
Angola
and Elisa Anissabeni, a black Mozambican woman. He was Elisa's fourth child. Raised in an extremely poor society, he used to skip school classes to play barefoot football with his friends in improvised pitches and using improvised footballs. His father died from tetanus when Eusébio
Eusébio
was eight years old, so Elisa almost exclusively took the parental care of young Eusébio.[12] Club career[edit] Early career[edit] He first started to play for a local amateur team called Os Brasileiros (The Brazilians), in honour of the great Brazil national team of the 1950s that he and his friends formed, they would play under the names of some of those superstars. The balls they used were made of socks stuffed with newspapers rolled into spheres. He tried to enlist with some friends for the team Grupo Desportivo de Lourenço de Marques, his favourite team and a Benfica feeder team, also the team where Mário Coluna
Mário Coluna
had played before his move to Benfica, but was rejected, without even being given a chance to prove his worth.[13][14] He then tried his luck with Sporting Clube de Lourenço Marques, who accepted him. He affirmed that he was spotted by a former Juventus goalkeeper turned scout when he was 15 years old: "When I was 15, Juventus of Italy, wanted to hire me, because one of their scouts, who had been a famous Italian goalkeeper for them, saw me and told them that there was a boy with a potential, that it would be good to take advantage while I was still unknown. Juventus proposed but my mum never wanted to hear anything from anyone".[15] Eusébio
Eusébio
played for two seasons with their youth team, while he made sporadic appearances in the senior team.[16] There he won the Campeonato Provincial de Moçambique and the Campeonato Distrital de Lourenço Marques in his last season, in 1960. Benfica[edit] He moved to Lisbon
Lisbon
in his late teens, after joining Benfica as an 18-year-old from his local club, Sporting Clube de Lourenço Marques, for 350,000 Portuguese escudos (equivalent to €136,000 in 2009). Benfica discovered Eusébio
Eusébio
due to the efforts of Brazilian former player José Carlos Bauer, who saw him in Lourenço Marques in 1960. Eusébio
Eusébio
could run 100 metres in under 11 seconds. Although he preferred playing with the right side foot, Eusébio
Eusébio
could use the left side just as well. At times, Eusébio
Eusébio
would suprise opponents with his dribbling ability, seemingly, a talent he preferred to keep secret. Bauer recommended Eusébio
Eusébio
first to his former club, São Paulo, but the Tricolor turned him down. Bauer then discussed Eusébio with his former coach in São Paulo, Béla Guttmann, who was coaching Benfica at the time.[17]

Eusébio
Eusébio
during his time at Benfica

The move was controversial; Sporting Lourenço Marques was a subsidiary of Sporting Clube de Portugal
Sporting Clube de Portugal
and the two rivals disputed the legality of the transfer. According to Eusébio: "I used to play in Sporting's feeder club in Mozambique. Benfica wanted to pay me in a contract to go while Sporting wanted to take me [to Portugal] as a junior player for experience with no monetary reward. Benfica made a nice approach. They went to speak to my mum, my brother, and offered €1,000 for three years. My brother asked for double and they paid it. They signed the contract with my mother and she got the money".[6] By 17 December 1960, Eusébio
Eusébio
arrived at Lisbon
Lisbon
and was sent to Lagos, in the Algarve, with Benfica fearing a kidnapping operation by Sporting rivals. During his transfer he was codenamed Ruth Malosso.[18] He remained there for 12 days, until the transfer upheaval would calm down. While he stayed in a hotel room he was warned for possible run-overs. Eusébio
Eusébio
considered leaving Portugal, but his mother convinced him to stay.[19] Benfica only registered him in May the next year and Eusébio
Eusébio
made his first appearance for them against Atlético Clube de Portugal
Atlético Clube de Portugal
in a friendly game on 23 May 1961. He scored a hat-trick in a 4–2 victory.[20] His debut in an official match was on 1 June 1961, against Vitória de Setúbal, in the third round second leg of the 1960–61 Taça de Portugal. The game was controversially scheduled for the day after the European Cup
European Cup
final against Barcelona and the Portuguese Football Federation
Portuguese Football Federation
did not postpone it. As the first team was returning from Bern, Benfica played with the reserve squad and was defeated 1–4. Eusébio
Eusébio
scored a goal and missed a penalty (the first of only five he missed throughout his career), but this was not enough to win the round (4–5 on aggregate). On 10 June 1961, Eusébio played for the first time in the Primeira Divisão, the last match day against Belenenses, where he scored a goal in a 4–0 win. On 15 June, Benfica played the final of the invitational Tournoi de Paris against Pelé's Santos, and in the beginning of the second half, with Benfica down 0–4, Béla Guttmann
Béla Guttmann
decided to bring Eusébio
Eusébio
from the bench to substitute Santana. Shortly after coming in, Santos reached 0–5. However, between the 63rd and the 80th minute, Eusébio
Eusébio
scored 3 goals and suffered a foul inside the penalty area, the penalty taker, José Augusto, failed to score though. The game finished 6–3 for Santos, with Eusébio
Eusébio
being on the cover of the famed French sporting newspaper, L'Équipe.

His following season was the one where he started to gain global recognition among football fans and critics alike. He scored 12 goals in 17 league matches, and even though the club finished third, they won the Taça de Portugal
Taça de Portugal
against Vitória de Setúbal, with Eusébio scoring two goals in the final. In that same season, he won the European Cup, also scoring two goals in the final against Real Madrid in a 5–3 result to Benfica. Due to his fine form during the season, he finished second in the 1962 Ballon d'Or, in his first complete season as a professional. In October 1963, he was selected to represent the FIFA
FIFA
team in the "Golden Anniversary" of The Football Association at Wembley Stadium. With Eusébio
Eusébio
playing for Benfica, they were also European Cup runners-up in 1963, 1965 and 1968. In the 1968 defeat to the English league champions Manchester United at Wembley Stadium, with the scores 1–1, he came close to winning the game for Benfica in the dying seconds of the game, only to have his shot saved by Alex Stepney. Despite this, and the fact that the English side went on to win 4–1 in extra time, he openly congratulated Stepney for his efforts throughout the game, stopping to applaud Stepney, as he threw the ball back into play.[21] He received a number of individual accolades and awards while playing for Benfica. He was the 1965 European Footballer of the Year (Ballon d'Or) and finished as runner-up twice, in 1962 and 1966, and in 1968 was the first winner of the Golden Boot Award, as Europe's leading scorer, a feat he repeated five years later. He was the Portuguese First Division's top scorer seven times (1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1970 and 1973), helping Benfica to win 11 Primeira Liga
Primeira Liga
(1960–1961, 1962–63, 1963–64, 1964–65, 1966–1967, 1967–1968, 1968–1969, 1970–1971, 1971–1972, 1972–1973 and 1974–1975), 5 Portuguese Cup wins (1961–1962, 1963–1964, 1968–1969, 1969–1970 and 1971–1972), 1 European Cup
European Cup
win (1961–1962) and 3 European Cup
European Cup
finals (1962–1963, 1964–1965 and 1967–1968). Eusébio
Eusébio
scored 638 goals in 614 official matches for Benfica,[22] including 317 goals in 301 Primeira Liga

In 1976–77 and 1977–78, Eusébio
Eusébio
played for two smaller Portuguese clubs, Beira-Mar, in the first division, and União de Tomar, in the Second Division. He also played in the North American Soccer League (NASL), for three different teams, from 1975 to 1977: Boston Minutemen
Boston Minutemen
(1975), Toronto Metros- Croatia
Croatia
(1976), and the Las Vegas Quicksilvers
Las Vegas Quicksilvers
(1977). His most successful season in the NASL was in 1976 with Toronto Metros-Croatia. He scored the winning goal in their 3–0 victory at the Soccer Bowl '76 to win the NASL title.[25] The same year, he played ten games for Monterrey in the Mexican league. The following season (1977), he signed for the Las Vegas Quicksilvers. By this time, injuries had taken their toll on the Black Panther, and he was constantly receiving medical treatment whilst playing for the Quicksilvers. During the season, he only managed to score two goals. Although his knees robbed him of his ability to continue in the NASL, Eusébio
Eusébio
wanted to continue to play soccer. He found a home in 1978 with the New Jersey Americans of the second-tier American Soccer League (ASL). He went on to play five games for the Buffalo Stallions during the 1979–80 Major Indoor Soccer League season. He retired in 1979 and formed part of the technical committee of the Portugal national football team.[26] International career[edit] See also: List of international goals scored by Eusébio Eusébio

was the leading scorer for his country, with 41 goals in 64 matches, until Pauleta

Eusébio
was also the most capped Portuguese player from 1972, until Tamagnini Nené made his 64th cap against Yugoslavia on 2 June 1984 in a friendly match, breaking Eusébio's record during the UEFA

national team against Luxembourg

on 8 October 1961, a match his country lost 4–2, with the player scoring his country's first goal in the match. 1966 World Cup[edit]

After Portugal

qualified for the 1966 World Cup, they were drawn in Group 3, alongside Bulgaria, Hungary
Hungary
and the reigning champions Brazil. After a modest performance against Hungary
Hungary
in the first game, Eusébio
Eusébio
scored a goal against Bulgaria. Topping the group with two wins, the team would play against the Brazilians for the final group match. With an injured Pelé, Portugal
Portugal
had no trouble in defeating them with two goals from Eusébio, including a famous volley from a tight angle after a corner kick. The result meant Brazil's early elimination. In the quarter-final, Portugal
Portugal
played North Korea, who had defeated and eliminated Italy
Italy
in the group stage. After trailing 0–3 in the 25th minute, Eusébio
Eusébio
proceeded to score four consecutive goals, two before half time and two in the first fifteen minutes of the second half. His fourth goal in that match came from a penalty when two North Korean players tackled him after a fast run Eusébio
Eusébio
had made from the middle of the Portuguese half to the opposition's penalty area. Portugal
Portugal
came back to win 5–3. In the semi-final match Portugal
Portugal
would have to face England. There was controversy about where the match would be hosted. Goodison Park
Goodison Park
in Liverpool
Liverpool
was the original venue for the game. However, due to intervention from the English officials, the venue changed to Wembley. It was rumoured that this had happened because of fear from English officials of the Portuguese performance and embarrassment if England lost in their own country with a debuting team.[27] Portugal
Portugal
had to make a last-minute train trip from Liverpool
Liverpool
to London. Throughout the game Eusébio
Eusébio
was closely marked by England's defensive midfielder Nobby Stiles, but still managed to score Portugal's only goal from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute, ending yet-to-be broken records of seven consecutive clean sheets and 708 minutes without conceding a goal for the English team.[28] After scoring the penalty, Eusébio went on to catch the ball and saluted Gordon Banks. The goal was not enough to nullify Bobby Charlton's two earlier goals. António Simões had a last-minute chance only for Stiles to make it into a corner. Portugal
Portugal
lost 1–2 and Eusébio
Eusébio
famously walked off the pitch in tears, being comforted by both his teammates and opponents. The game is known as the Jogo das Lágrimas (Game of Tears) in Portugal. In the third place match, Portugal
Portugal
played against the Soviet Union. In the 12th minute after a handball inside the area, Eusébio
Eusébio
scored the opening goal (his ninth and final World Cup goal) from the penalty spot. Although Lev Yashin
Lev Yashin
guessed the side in which the ball would go, he was powerless to save it. Again and as he had done before with Banks, Eusébio
Eusébio
went to salute his friend Yashin after he had scored. Portugal
Portugal
won the game 2–1 to what remains their best ever World Cup participation, and the best performance by a team on its debut since Italy's victory in 1934 (subsequently equalled by Croatia
Croatia
in 1998). In addition to winning the Golden Boot (with nine goals) for the 1966 World Cup, Eusébio
Eusébio
also set a record that year for the most penalties scored (shoot-out not included), with four. Eusébio's four goals against North Korea in the quarter-final match also helped Portugal tie the record for largest deficit overcome in a win (three goals, equaling Austria
Austria
in 1954) and he became the fifth player to score as many goals in a FIFA
FIFA
World Cup match, a record he jointly held until Oleg Salenko
Oleg Salenko
scored five in the 1994 World Cup. The English were so impressed by Eusébio's performances that he was immediately added to the Madame Tussauds

collection of waxwork.[28] Personal life[edit] Eusébio

player Ruud Gullit.[32] The Portuguese Football Federation made a statement and said that a moment of silence was to be observed in Portuguese football matches. There were tributes from Eusébio's friend Cristiano Ronaldo,[32] Luís Figo, José Mourinho,[33] Carlos Queiroz,[34][35] FIFA
FIFA
President Sepp Blatter[32] UEFA
UEFA
president Michel Platini,[36] Greg Dyke, and former President of Mozambique and childhood friend Joaquim Chissano.[37] Following Eusébio's death, the Portuguese government declared three days of national mourning. Hundreds of thousands paid tribute to him.[38] On 6 January 2014, a Mass was held at the Igreja do Seminário do Largo da Luz. On 9 January, one of his wishes was granted as his coffin was transported around the field of the Estádio da Luz.[24][39][40] Three days later, his statue at the Praça Centenarium was transformed into a memorial.[41][42] Hours later, the name "Eusébio" was on the back of Benfica players' shirts during "O Clássico".[43] On 5 January 2015, one year after his death, the avenue in front of the Estádio da Luz was renamed Avenida Eusébio
Eusébio
da Silva Ferreira, becoming its new address.[44] On 3 July 2015, his remains were moved to the National Pantheon, in which important Portuguese personalities are buried. Parliament voted unanimously for him to be interred there.[45] Eusébio
Eusébio
was the first footballer to be buried at the Pantheon, and the ceremony was attended by the nation's President and Prime Minister.[46] Career statistics[edit] Club[edit]
