Brazilian soccer player known as one of the greatest of all time; very popular with soccer fans. In spite of being physically unique with curved legs, the left bent inward and the right shorter and curved outward, Garrincha was the greatest dribbler in the history of the sport. He was twice a world champion, in 1958 and 1962.

Called "Mane," short for Manuel, Garrincha played 60 games for the Brazilian team, beginning in 1955. He had only one defeat, which came during the 1966 World Cup in Liverpool, England. His last appearance on the field was December 1982. Reportedly plagued by numerous personal problems including alcoholism throughout much of his life, Garrincha died 1/20/1983, Rio de Janeiro.
