A quick, skilful, and powerful winger, 'the Hurricane' was a member of the legendary Confederação Brasileira de Futebol team that won the 1970 FIFA World Cup, during which he scored in all six games his team played.
“The pressure was to qualify for the World Cup. Of course, someone can now say ‘ok, we’ve qualified, that’s it’. But for me it’s not like that, we want to make history, achieve something different. In my head the pressure is to achieve something different from what we have done. Not just going there, three games and thank you very much. That doesn’t go through my head.”
