World Cup '74 Portrait #105 (Edu: Brazil)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Today’s subject is Edu, previously unknown to me until encountering the sticker representing the player in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974 collectors’ album, who was selected as a member of the Brazil squad for the Finals, during which he appeared once, in the concluding First Round group match, the 3 – 0 win against Zaire with which the Brazilians just pipped Scotland to a place in the second phase.
