5.0 out of 5 stars Fine book of great player 22 Mar 2013
By Jack
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very fine book, about first years of Eusebio career, and his childhood in Mozambique- reader gets warm feelings of that great footbal player.
Pity that story ended in 1966- just after World Cup in England. (book was "writen/talked" then -in 1966, and released).
I would be interested also in rest of Eusebio years on football field. And after...
Together with some 10 DVDs of Benfica/Portugal full matches from that period (some also from Amazon) which I have colected-it bulids portrait of one of football geniuses ever.
P.S (plus some rare photos- printed on super paper).
