Carlos Alberto

Brazil’s Nineteen Seventy World Cup-winning captain Carlos Alberto Torres has died at age seventy-two

The athletic right-back, who was widely considered one of the best defenders of all time, scored Brazil’s fourth goal in a famous four- one victory in the Nineteen Seventy final over Italy in Mexico City.

Alberto made over four hundred league appearances in eight years with Santos between Nineteen sixty- six and Nineteen seventy- four, winning the Paulistao championship four times as well as the Recopa Sul-Americana and Taca de Prata in Nineteen sixty- eight.

He had begun his career at Fluminense, where he returned in Nineteen seventy- four and spent three more years before a short spell with Flamengo.

Alberto was one of a number of high-profile Brazilian players recruited by a re-branded North American Soccer League in the USA, signing for the New York Cosmos and reunited with Pele in Nineteen seventy- seven.
