R.I.P. Eusébio da Silva Ferreira
Eusébio was one of the best players of all time and helped Portugal to third place at the 1966 World Cup, finishing as top scorer in the tournament with nine goals.
The Mozambique-born striker made his name at club level with Benfica, winning 11 league titles during a 15-year spell and two Golden Boot awards as Europe's leading goal scorer.
He also scored 41 goals in 64 appearances for Portugal.
The Black Panther is holding his lucky white towel in the picture, which he brought to every football match as a lucky charm for our players.
The man may have passed away but the legend will never die.
May you rest in peace, Eusébio!
