Goal of the Week even though you lost 1:6 isn’t bad.
Rest In Peace, Captain
Today Portugal and Benfica bid farewell to one of their greatest captains, Mario Coluna.
Both on and off the field he was an exemplary leader, bursting with energy that a modern day Yaya displays, a passionate competitor, champion and gentleman. Born in Mozambique like his legendary teammate and friend Eusebio, who referred to Mario as his ‘older brother’ and called him ‘sir’, Coluna too is considered a national treasure.
The ‘Sacred Monster’ was a loyal Benfiquista competing in a total of 677 matches, scoring 150 goals and lifting 19 titles, which includes 2 European Cups, as well as losing 3 other finals. He’ll always be remembered as the club’s greatest captain as well as Portugal’s, where he wore the armband in the 1966 World Cup.
Descanse em Paz.
