Benfica will hold a minute’s silence in memory of Eusebio when they play their first match since the death of their legendary striker this weekend.
The ex-Portugal international, who was top scorer at the 1966 World Cup, died from a heart attack last week aged 71. His family requested that a “total silence” is held ahead of Sunday’s home game against bitter rivals Porto.

Widely considered one of the best players of all time, Eusebio starred as Benfica won a host of domestic and European honours in his spell at the club between 1960 and 1975.
The 1965 European Footballer of the Year scored 733 times in a professional career spanning 745 matches. He also played 64 times for Portugal, scoring 41 goals.
