Could it be the Golden Boot winner of 1962, (Edvardo Neto) , better known as Vava?

If not, did our man ever play for a European club?

Not Vava as the surname starts S-Z (so not Neto). Surnames and Brazilian players is a bit tricky and I have gone with the recommendations in the "ambiguities thread".

Feel free to have another guess later today.

And no, our man never played for a European club.

GOAL
Leonidas, topscorer at the 1938 World Cup and possibly the inventor of the bicycle kick.


Well done and back to you Karb!
