Portuguese Legend Passes On

Mozambique-born and Portuguese football legend Eusebio has died at the age of 71.

Eusebio was a prolific striker in his day staring for both Portugal and his home-based club Benfica.

Some of his biggest accolades for Portugal saw him finish as the top goalscorer at the 1966 World Cup in England. At the same tournament, his feats on the field led Portugal to a third place finish.

On the club front he won 11 league titles with Benfica and the European Cup in 1992.

On a personal note he was the 1965 European Footballer of the Year and finished as the 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.

Euebio was also the Portuguese First Division's top scorer seven times.
