Sadly Eusebio has passed away
another great player from the past,
he was a genius on the ball
and with electric pace so fast.
He really was a great footballer
up there with the one and only Pele,
he was way ahead of his time
and would be a superstar today.
Some players are just great
they are just better than the rest,
Maradonna, Cruyff, Zidane,
Puskas, Messi and Georgie Best.
They have so much skill
with magic in their feet,
they do things with the ball
that will get you out of your seat.
Great players excite and thrill
as you stand and watch in awe,
they will beat one or two defenders
and go round the keeper to score.
So R.I.P. the great Eusebio
who I watched on T.V. as a boy,
and thank you for the goals
and bringing so much joy.
