World Cup greats
No.25 - Eusebio
The Portuguese powerhouse only graced one World Cup making his total of nine goals all the more impressive. He was an inspirational figure throughout the 1966 finals, guiding his side to the semi-finals before losing 2-1 to the hosts, England. Predictably, Eusebio score the goal for Portugal. Having scored twice against Brazil, it was North Korea who suffered most at the hands of Eusebio as he hit four in their quarter-final tie.
