940282_w2.jpgEusébio da Silva Ferreir, or Eusebio as he was simply known, passed away this morning at 3:30am, according to widespread reports in the Portuguese press.

The cause of death has been pinpointed as cardiopulmonary arrest – Eusebio was 71 years of age.

“The Black Panther” made his name in world football at the 1966 World Cup, where he led Portugal to third place and finished the tournament as top scorer.

Eusebio was known for his speed, technique and powerful right-footed shot and was one of the finest strikers of his generation.

With Benfica, Eusebio won 11 Portuguese titles and a European Cup in a competition he would lose in the final of three times.

Individual awards for Eusebio also included European Footballer of the Year in 1965 and the European Golden Boot in 1968 and 1973.

RIP Eusebio.
