LISBON: Portuguese football legend Eusebio, who was the top scorer in the 1966 World Cup, has died Sunday at the age of 71 years, his former club Benfica confirmed.
Despite his scoring record, however, his only appearance at a World Cup finals was in 1966 in England.
"I was the best player in the world, top scorer in the world and Europe. I did everything, except win a World Cup," Eusebio said in a interview in 2011, recalling his tears after Portugal's loss in the 1966 World Cup semi-final to England.
