Although he never achieved the same popularity as his contemporary, Brazilian star Pele (no doubt due to Portugal's inability to achieve international success as Brazil), the former Benfica striker remains in the debate over who is football's all-time greatest player.

He won 11 Portuguese League titles with Benfica, and his playing time there was marked with an astonishing 1.05 goals per game average. Twice, he was the top goal-scorer in all of Europe.

I just saw this news on the New York Times website. Eusébio was one of the greats, and by all accounts one of the real gentlemen of international football. England may have won World Cup, but Eusébio was the real star of 1966.
