A mug celebrating The Little Bird on the wing for Brazil

Brazil's original maverick. 'The Little Bird' overcame great odds to become the finest player of his generation. He  was born with several birth defects: his spine was deformed, his right leg bent inwards and his left leg six centimeters shorter and curved outwards. In spite of these difficultiesGarrincha is considered one of the greatest players in the history of Brazilian football, with a reputation in his homeland to rival Pele's. He won the World Cup with Brazil in 1958 and 1962, and was named both Player of the Tournament and Top Scorer in 1962. Known as Alegria Do Pove (Joy of the People) Garrincha had a colourful but troubled private life - finally losing his life-long battle with alcoholism in 1983. The greatest dribbler of all time will always have a place in the hearts of the Brazilian people.
