The amazing "Black Panther" from Mozambique, Eusebio, who played his entire career for Benfica of Lisbon, Portugal went "Over the Horizon" on January 5. The world has lost a futbol legend. Eusébio da Silva Ferreira was 71 years old.
To give you an example of how amazing he was, during his 745 career matches he scored - get this - 733 goals! I had the privilege of watching him play, showing his genius and goal-scoring virtuosity, in Amsterdam at a European Cup Final between Benfica and Real Madrid.
He was right up there with the "Black Pearl", Pele, and for many was an unsung hero.
