Sporting Lourenço Marques and flags etc[edit]

It is misleading to imply that Lourenço Marques was IN Portugal but I accept that the Mozambique flag is an anacronism. I hope the current comprimise is acceptable to allA Geek Tragedy

It is not misleading at all, since the constitution recognized the territory of Portugal in several regions, including the "continent" and "Mozambique". So Lourenço Marques was in Portugal, in the East Africa, in Mozambique. --Good Hope Phanta (talk) 15:12, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

WE NEED A PROPER PICTURE OF THE GUY HIMSELF[edit]

Excuse me, but I beleive this article will make huge progress if we get a, preferably up to date, picture of the man himself, not just a statue of him, although the statue may stay as another picture. Mcjm4796 (talk) 09:20, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Best footballer of all time?[edit]

IIRC, Sir Jack Charlton ranked him above Pele. I'm not sure how widely that view is held but he could kick a ball extraordinarily hard; I remember a long freekick he took against Man United in 1968 which hit the crossbar and which Alec Stepney in goal had got nowhere near.

First world-class african striker?[edit]

I think this statement is a bit bold, given that Just Fontaine, who scored 13 goals at the 1958 world cup was from Morocco. Certainly somebody scoring 13 goals at a world cup has to be a world-class striker, right? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frodo 05 (talkcontribs) 12:26, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

It's not just bold, it's POV. Zarcadia (talk) 21:46, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

chicago CBP[edit]

According to the wiki page of Chicago CBP, Eusebio had a stint there in the late 1970s —Preceding unsigned comment added by 27.32.135.162 (talk) 01:56, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Activities since retirement?[edit]

Can anyone add any info about this at all? Presumably he hasn't just sat around doing nothing for 30+ years? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.108.241.233 (talk) 19:12, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Too many reaction quotes[edit]

The section on his death has been expanded to include a lengthy list of quotes and tributes from various people, to the extent that it's now longer than the section about his career at Benfica. This is surely excessive - the article should focus on his life, not what people said about his death. The list of quotes should be pared back to only the most notable ones, with perhaps a list of others who also made tributes. See something like Sócrates#Legacy and death for a more reasonable section (while noting that they're not quite on the same level of importance). Robofish (talk) 15:10, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

I'd already trimmed this section before I noted your helpful thoughts above. For starters, I've cut out all the Cape Verde stuff. Of course, more tributes may be added, so we need to be vigilant. And some of the quotes may be from top football people, but even those could be edited down. Edwardx (talk) 20:24, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

His death not mentioned on English Wiki main page[edit]

Isn't this a little bit strange? Xakepxakep (talk) 17:50, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Try WP:ITN. GiantSnowman 17:53, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
It has been nominated for ITN/RD and has consensus to be posted; we are just awaiting an admin to do so. 331dot (talk) 18:52, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

" A Mass"[edit]

"A Mass will be offered in his remembering (...)" A mass of what? BenficaNNossaPaixao (talk) 22:04, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

No honours section?![edit]

Why isn't there a section listing all the football titles he achieved? 85.247.249.199 (talk) 20:25, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
