Amarildo Tavares da Silveira, also known as Amarildo (Portuguese pronunciation: [amaˈɾiwdu]; born in Campos, Rio de Janeiro, July 29, 1940) was a Brazilian football player who played as a striker.
His career lasted from 1957 to 1974 and he played for Goytacaz, Flamengo, Botafogo and Vasco da Gama, and in Italy for Milan, Fiorentina and Roma. He won one “Coppa Italia” in 1967 with Milan, and the Italian title (“Scudetto”) in 1969 with Fiorentina.
For Brazil he was capped 23 times, from April 1961 to June 1966, and won the 1962 FIFA World Cup as a replacement for the injured Pelé. He scored eight goals for his country, including three during the 1962 tournament, one of which came in the final itself.
On January 24, 2008, Amarildo was hired as América's head coach. On January 26, 2008, in his first match as América's head coach, Volta Redonda beat América 4-2 at Estádio Giulite Coutinho. He was sacked by América's board after managing the team for just a week.
