Benfica 1961 and 1962

Can someone educate me on the great team of the 1961 and 1962?

Apart from Eusebio, I knew nothing of the team.

José Águas, Jose Agosta, Coluna, Costa Pereira and Simões.

Who were they? What position did they play?

Here's a list of some of the players I know:

Goalkeeper:
-Costa Pereira


Defenders:
-Mario João (centerback)

-Germano (centerback)


-Angelo (centerback)

-Cruz (leftback)

-Cavem (rightback/right winger)


-Neto (rightback?)

Midfield:
-José Augusto (right winger)


-Santana (central midfield)

-Coluna (central midfield)


-Simões (left winger)

Forwards:
-José Águas (attacking midfielder/forward)


-Eusebio (striker)


-Torres (striker)


------------------

one star = took part in one of the two victorious finals
two stars = took part in both european finals


1962, the best Benfica-team of all times

Well, as long as we are the reigning portuguese champion or cupwinner every now and then I'm fine with our present still Golden days can't last forever otherwise it would be called golden uncountable consecutive decades or even golden eternity. And I can assure you once even Pinto Da Costa will pass away and with him 'the system or arbitral whorery' (oh where's my education and my ration gone whenever I talk this man and the refs? Oh yes, substituted by freedom of speech... However, it will be a glorious age again for the sides from Lisbon )

Very true so! Them, the portuguese refs and Sinhó Pinto Da Costa from the coldest angle in north of our beautiful and beloved Portugal one can imagine, they form one alliance, I rest asured of that fact.
