Os Magriços was the nickname of the Portugal national football team which finished third in the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England. It was based on the Benfica team that won two consecutive European Cups, in 1961 and 1962, and which included Mário Coluna, Eusébio, José Augusto, José Augusto Torres and António Simões. It was selected by Manuel da Luz Afonso and coached by Brazilian trainer Otto Glória. The nickname is derived from a 15th-century Portuguese chivalric legend - The Twelve of England (Portuguese: Os Doze de Inglaterra). It was made famous by the poet Luís de Camões in his 1572 Os Lusíadas. It tells the story of twelve Portuguese knights who travelled to England at the request of twelve English ladies to avenge their insult by a group of English knights. One of these Portuguese knights, Álvaro Gonçalves Coutinho, was nicknamed O Magriço.
Head coach: Otto Glória
