Eusébio has surgery to unclog artery

LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Former Portugal striker Eusebio had surgery to unclog an artery Monday

Doctors said an hourlong procedure went well and Eusebio was recovering in intensive care.

Eusebio, 65, was admitted to a Lisbon hospital Friday after complaining he felt unwell. Doctors said a cartoid artery had narrowed and was reducing the flow of blood to his brain, putting him in danger of a stroke.

Eusebio da Silva Ferreira, who was born in Mozambique when it was still a Portuguese colony, became known as "The Black Panther" for his powerful performances in the 1960s for Benfica and Portugal.

In 1998, a panel of 100 experts gathered by soccer's world governing body FIFA, named him to its International Hall of Fame as one of the sport's 10 all-time greats.

Eusebio played 64 times for Portugal and scored 41 goals.

He helped Benfica win the European Cup in 1962, beating Real Madrid 5-3, and was voted European Player of the Year in 1965.

Eusebio scored 727 goals in 715 appearances for Benfica.

Eusébio released from hospital

Thursday, 26 April 2007

Portugal's most celebrated former player Eusébio was released from hospital on Thursday, four days after surgery on his carotid arteries.

Eusébio thanks
The operation successfully unblocked the arteries which carry blood to the brain, diminishing the risk of the 65-year-old having a stroke. "I want to thank all those that have supported me by sending faxes and calling, but I also have to thank the doctor who operated on me because of the way I was treated," Eusébio, who was wearing a bandage around his neck, told local television in a weak voice.

Derby looms
The surgery took place at Benfica's new hospital, about 500 metres from the Estádio da Luz where the Mozambique-born player thrilled crowds in the 1960s and 1970s. Eusébio, who has been a key figure on the sidelines of Benfica games, did not confirm whether he would attend his team's match against old rivals Sporting Clube de Portugal on Sunday. "I can't, I'm not 100 per cent. I can't play," he joked.
