Football legend Eusebio - level 3

13-01-2014 06:00

The legendary Portuguese footballer Eusebio has died at the age of 71.

Born in Mozambique in 1942, he went on to play 64 times for his country, scoring 41 goals. He also scored nine goals during the 1966 World Cup in England, more than any other player and helped Portugal to finish third.

He’s widely considered to be one of the best players of all-time, scoring 733 times in 745 professional matches.

Current Portugal captain and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has paid tribute to him on Twitter, posting this photo of the pair together.

After his playing career ended, Eusebio was an ambassador for Benfica and Portuguese football.

A spokesman for Benfica has said Eusebio’s body will be brought to the stadium later today so fans will have the chance to pay their final respects.

Difficult words: pay tribute (to say that you admire and respect somebody publicly), ambassador (somebody who represents a particular sport).
