EUSEBIO, the Portugal football legend who was top scorer at the 1966 World Cup, has died at the age of 71.

Born in Mozambique in 1942, Eusebio da Silva Ferreira played 64 times for Portugal, scoring 41 goals. His nine goals at the 1966 World Cup in England included four against North Korea.

Widely considered as one of the best players of all-time, the Benfica striker scored 733 times in 745 professional matches. His blistering acceleration and dazzling dribbling skills earned him the European Footballer of the Year award in 1965.

He won the European Cup with Benfica in 1962 and was in the side that lost to Manchester United in the 1968 Wembley final. He won 10 league championships and five Portuguese cups in his 15 years at the Lisbon club and was Portugal's top league scorer between 1964 and 1973.
