Eusebio da Silva

Sort of relevant with Football being in the news. I went on a guided walk round a bairro called Mafalala today…… a bairro is what is called a barrio in Spanish and a township in South Africa.

This one has a huge community spirit and has also produced various famous people including the first and second presidents of Mozambique. However the person most people have heard of is the Portuguese footballer from the 1960’s called Eusebio. This is a painting on the wall of a little library in a local school.Eusebio4

This is the pitch he used to play on.Eusebio5

  • This is a street named after him.Eusebio6
