Dubbed the Black Panther or the Black Pearl, Eusebio was one of the greatest Portuguese players in football history.
The Mozambican origin Eusebio guided Portugal to reach third place in their debut World Cup in 1966, while becoming the top goalscorer of the tournament with nine goals.
The 1965 European Footballer of the Year was known for his speed and his powerful, accurate right-footed strike.
During his 15 years at Benfica he developed into their most prolific striker of all-time, scoring a mind boggling 727 goals in 715 games.
Eusébio da Silva Ferreira, or simply known as Eusebio is considered one of the best footballers of all time by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics.
His goal tally of 41 goals in 64 appearances for Portugal was a national record until it was broken by another Portuguese all-time great, Pauleta.
The 68-year-old is a football legend and a constant presence in Portugal's football circuit.
