On Tuesday FIFA confirmed reports that Carlos Alberto, the man who captained the Brazil team often called soccer's greatest ever to victory at the 1970 World Cup, died. He was 72. Alberto scored one of the most memorable goals in World Cup history in the final as his side beat Italy 4-2 in Mexico City. He rampaged forward from right-back to put the seal on victory, hammering the most emphatic of finishes into the net after a stunning move involving eight players including Tostao and Pele, who rolled the ball off to him. Then 25, he remains the youngest-ever World Cup-winning captain having already captained Santos, his club at the time. He retired from the sport in 1982. Alberto coached clubs including Flamengo and Corinthians after calling time on his playing career and worked in international football, most recently as coach of Azerbaijan.
