Estrela Solitária Um Brasileiro Chamado Garrincha Read & download Ì 107 The World Cup Finals Sweden 1958 Brazil vs the fearsome USSRIn the opening three minutes 'the greatest three minutes in the history of football' one man wrote himself into the record books Brazil went on to win the cup and in Garrincha a star was bornGarrincha was the unlikeliest of footballers with a right leg that turned inw. Garrincha was the epitome of the flawed sporting hero the genius player whose personal demons led to an early death Garrincha the book details his life from his childhood in Pau Grande through the length of his career and his eventual death from alcoholism It captures his amazing talent his playful charisma his colourful personal life and his uniue place in the hearts of Brazilian football fansBorn with crooked legs he defied all expectations and became one of the most successful players in international football history winning two World Cups and only once losing in a Brazilian shirt in 60 appearances Winning two world cups he became a cult legend in BrazilHis life was incredible He lost his virginity to a goat slept with hundreds of women and sired at least 14 children his affair and subseuent marriage to the singer Elza Soares that caught the imagination of a nation and led to them both being vilified He was profligate with money uninterested in football that he wasn t playing in and totally incapable of being faithfulBy the age of forty nine Garrincha was dead destroyed by the excesses that made him such a fascinating figure His downfall makes for depressing but gripping readingThere is something that draws us to those genius sports stars who can t conuer their demons and don t get the change to live the post retirement life they deserve Their flaws make them relatable and human As an Irishman you read the book feeling like its an alternate world story of George Best s life or even how the great Paul McGrath s life may have gone had he been born in BrazilRuy Castro has written a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating biography which is excellently translated by Andrew Downie It is a brilliant and detailed insight into a fascinating life of a genius player It is a comprehensive and worthy tribute to a footballer who had he played a few years later in the television era would be remembered as one of the all time greats The only downside for me was the lack of detail on the social and cultural environment in which Garrincha lived I feel I learned an incredible amount about Garrincha but less than I expected about the Brazil of the 50 s and 60 sI first the read the book when the English translation came out in 2004 and I thoroughly enjoyed this reread I highly recommend it for any football fan and is a great companion book for watching Russia 2018See all my sports book reviews at

A very uick engaging read about a fantastic Brazilian soccerfutebol player that a lot of fans of today know little to nothing about Manuel Francisco de los Santos nicknamed Garrincha was a dribbling legend probably the best who ever lived and a true joy of the people that helped Brazil reach the lofty heights of World Cup success in 58 and 62 as well as league championships for his professional club Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro Even in 2018 when I visited Rio he was remembered in graffiti portraits on the white walls near Botafogo s HThe book was translated from Portuguese to English competently and there weren t too many glitches that were THAT distractingThe book did a great job of chronicling Garrincha s rise from impoverished beginnings to the heights of football greatness with Garrincha seemingly and blissfully along for the ride coupled with prodigious amounts of alcohol cacha a primarily and womanizing The alcoholism eventually killed him as it so often needlessly does and the author did a great job documenting Garrincha s downfall as wellI d highly recommend this book to any devoted soccer fan andor anyone interested in Brazil especially its history from the 1950s through the early 1980s My only criticisms about the book were the ENDLESS comments on how well endowed Garrincha was the lack of discussion on how Brazil s then military government essentially pimped him out for political purposes in the run up to the 66 World Cup the lack of discussion at the end of the book about Elza Soares the Brazilian samba singer and Garrincha s second wife who tried and failed to help him as well as the aftermath of Garrincha s death in 83
