Considered one of the best footballers of all-time. He helped the Portuguese national team reach third place at the 1966 World Cup, being the top goalscorer of the tournament with nine goals and was the European Footballer of the Year in 1965. He played for Benfica for 15 years, and is the team's all-time top scorer.

Nicknamed "The Black Pearl", Eusébio scored 727 goals in 715 games and is considered Benfica's and Portugal's most renowned player. In 1962, he won the European Cup with Benfica, scoring two goals in the final against Real Madrid. Benfica won 5-3. Benfica were also European Cup runners-up in 1963, 1965 and 1968.

Pelé named Eusébio as one of the 125 best living footballers in his 2004 FIFA 100 list. In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Portugal by the Portuguese Football Federation as their most outstanding player.
