When his boss was called to train at Flamengo, his boss , Vasco supporter, threatened his job. With that, my father indicated Jurandyr, who was his reserve at Municipal and ended up champion of Flamengo for Flamengo shortly after. Antunes and Nando, the elders, were not so prominent.
The family stars would come later. Career as a Player, Zico in In addition to Juventude, he started to practice the sport known today as futsal at the River Football Club, traditional club of Piedade, where one of the teachers was Joaquim Pedro da Luz Filho, Seu Quinzinho.
At River, his football as a boy drew attention. But his first field football club was Flamengo, where he moved at the age of fourteen, when in the radio host Celso Garcia, a family friend, watched Zico play in a tournament in River, where he played with his shirt on. Santos, in which the boy scored ten goals in a 15 x 3 victory for his team. Garcia took him to the club's soccer school. Flamengo First years Zico only debuted in the main team in , in a match against Vasco da Gama, whose score ended 2 to 1 for the rubro-negro team, in which the debutante gave the pass to Fio Maravilha to score the winning goal.
Zico was only established as a starter in the team in , after undergoing an intense physical preparation that included dedication of a good part of his day, since he arrived at the club, in when he was still at school , to a job of muscle strengthening, based mainly on anabolic steroids from two to three injections, according to Zico himself , due to the previously thin body.
In , at the age of 16, Zico was sent to Bahia with a group of players from Rio de Janeiro to carry out an evaluation at Fluminense de Feira, but was disapproved for his physical size and returned to Flamengo shortly thereafter. And due to his thin body at the beginning of his career and his neighborhood Quintino , he earned the affectionate nickname "Galinho de Quintino". Still working for the youth team, he participated in two matches for the main team of Flamengo in the Carioca Championship, enough to win his first title as a professional.
However, it would still take two years to establish himself in the squad and bury the image of a player of weak physique, who succumbed to the first blow of the opponents. After these two years, in when he also received the number 10 shirt , he began to demonstrate exciting football, with dribbling, throwing and sweeping runs towards the goal and also the skill that would characterize him, that of taking his fouls in millimeters.
This year, he won his second Carioca for Flamengo, the first as holder and shirt 10, leading a young team in decisions against the most experienced teams from Vasco and America where his brother Edu played at the time. In the Brazilian Championship, he received his first Golden Ball from Placar Magazine, elected by the publication the best player in the championship. In the following three years, however, Zico saw rivals celebrate the state title: Rivellino's Fluminense won twice in and and, more painfully, Vasco de Roberto Dinamite took the cup in after a penalty shootout against Flamengo in which Zico , having the chance to give the title to his club if he converted his collection, he lost.
The series of penalties would continue and end in a Vasco victory. The "Era Zico Early career. National Archives. From , however, Flamengo would enter a golden period under the command of Zico. In he also scored his th goal, in a match against Goytacaz, surpassing, still at the age of 26, Dida as the greatest scorer in Flamengo's history. In the following year, the unprecedented title in the Brazilian Championship would finally come.
The clash took place at Serra Dourada Stadium. Flamengo was declared the winner and advanced to the semifinal phase of the competition, where they overcame Deportivo Cali, from Colombia, and Jorge Wilstermann, from Bolivia. In the decision, he faced the Chileans of Cobreloa. The return, in Chile, was marked by the enormous violence of the rivals, especially of their defender Mario Soto, who attacked the flamenguistas Andrade and Lico with a sharp ring. The Chileans won and, according to the regulations of the season, the trophy would be decided on a neutral field, which was in Montevideo, at the Centenario Stadium.
Zico again scored the two winning goals, this time , the second of them, ten minutes from the end, in one of his most unforgettable free kicks. The Campeonato Carioca had already reserved the joy of imposing a defeat on Botafogo, returning a defeat of nine years before it still resonated between the two fans.
The magical year of ended in the best possible way: from the state decision, the team went to Tokyo to face Liverpool's Britons in the Intercontinental Cup. The English team was widely favorite: in the past eight years, they had won the English league five times, a UEFA Cup and three UEFA Champions Cups, with a roster of respected players from the English and Scottish national teams, who did not cease to look at superiority to Brazilians in the locker room, before departure.
Voted the best in the field even without scoring, he received a coveted sports car from the sponsor of the match, Toyota, as an individual award, together with Nunes; both would demonstrate the great union of the group, selling the vehicles and dividing the money equally among the players. Even before the match, when asked about the British favoritism, he would have said: "they are favorites, yes, but for second place, which is very honorable". During it, in desperation, goalkeeper Grobbelaar shouted to defender and captain Phil Thompson: "Throw Zico away, Thompson, throw Zico away, in the name of God!
Afterwards, the opposing coach, Bob Paisley, declared: "You play a game that we don't know. You dance, that should be prohibited". The second half of is no longer so good: returning from a painful elimination at the World Cup, Zico loses the two tournaments he competes with Flamengo. The Campeonato Carioca is lost to Vasco. The flavor was more special for having eliminated Vasco on the way in the quarter-finals, with Zico scoring the equalizer which guaranteed the Flemish classification in the 44th minute of the second half.
The finals were against Santos. The paulistas, who aspired for their seventh national title, had won the first game by 2 x 1. On the return, playing injured, Zico ruined the Santos dream by scoring before the first minute, in a match ended in a red-black victory by 3 x 0. Zico lifted the cup aware that it would be his last match for Flamengo: although the transfer has not yet been announced, Galinho already knew if his sale to the Italian team of Udinese, in a transfer already agreed one month before the decision and kept confidential for eventual protests from the fans not to hinder the walk towards the title.
Coveted by more traditional clubs in the country, such as Roma and Juventus, his trip to Friuli's modest team caused a scandal in the rest of Italy. The motto was "or Zico or Austria! The threat was taken seriously by the country's president, Sandro Pertini, who finally authorized the purchase of Zico. Galinho arrived in Udine treated from the start as a king. Even so, he kept his humble and professional attitude, trying to make everyone at ease: one of the team's reserves, Pradella, had even had chills and intestinal disarray the first time he was scheduled to play alongside the Brazilian.
Zico scored 19 goals, only one behind in the league's top scorer, with Michel Platini of champion Juventus. The detail is that the Frenchman played six more games, largely due to an injury that Zico had suffered in a friendly against Brescia. Playing often injured, knowing the team's dependence on him, Zico began to become disenchanted with the club's leaders, who had promised to form a strong team capable of fighting for the title, which had not been happening - besides him , the only players with some recognition were his teammate and in the future also Flamengo Edinho and a veteran ex-player of the Italian team, Franco Causio, with whom he was in the midfield.
He began to dream of his return to Flamengo. The second season was marked by the struggle not to fall, with him playing only fifteen times, but still scoring twelve goals. Another reason for his desire to leave was the process he underwent in the Italian court for allegedly illegally sending money to Brazil, which would only later end in his acquittal. In an interview with the English magazine FourFourTwo, Zico clarified what happened: I signed an image use contract in Brazil and, in Italy, the president of Udinese signed another advertising contract.
It would take an authorization from the Italian Federal Revenue Service to be able to advertise in Italy. I respected that and fulfilled my other contract. But then the tax agents filed a lawsuit against me and I had to appeal. I then showed the contract I had signed in Brazil, which respected Brazilian laws, and proved that I paid taxes correctly. The funny thing is that I ended up paying more taxes than a citizen of Udine normally paid. I appealed and was totally absolved.
It was totally legal and I did nothing to avoid paying my taxes. Only the press didn't mention that. Zico did not fail to reproduce his characteristic play in Italy, terrifying the opposing goalkeepers with his free kicks, generating even fierce debates in sports programs on the country's television channels: "How to avoid Zico's goals? During his time at Udinese, Zico scored 17 goals from his 57 goals. Of the "normal" goals, two are remembered in particular: the victory, in November 19 83, scored in the 41st minute of the second half, on the then champion, Roma, who had never lost to Udinese.
Another was a bicycle on his debut at the mythical San Siro Stadium, in a game against Milan, lowering the score at the end of the match to 3 x 2 - he would still find time to assist Causio for the equalizer. He was also very applauded and had his name shouted and sung by the opposing fans, a fact that occurred against Ascoli, Genoa and Catania. Against Ascoli, fans, reporters and even the opposing goalkeeper applauded him after scoring a beautiful goal. In Genoa, the entire stadium sang his name and in Catania the fans of the rival team not only shouted and sang his name but also cheered for him: every time he touched the ball he was cheered and when a foul appeared near the area , cried out for Zico to charge her.
At the end of the game, Brazilian player Pedrinho, from Catania and his colleague at the World Cup, as well as ex-opponent of Vasco , was asked by a reporter: "Could you have won the game? And he replied: "How could we if even our fans were rooting for Zico? His charisma and talent continued to remain in the heart of the Udinese fan even after his departure: in , four years after leaving the club which had fallen to Serie B two seasons after the idol left , he filled the Comunale del Stadium Friuli in the match that marked his farewell to the Brazilian team.
Twenty years later, in November , Galinho received Udine's honorary citizenship. Who synthesized in a better way the great metamorphosis he performed in the city was a journalist from "Il Gazzettino de Veneza", the professional in charge of following him, Luigi Maffei. For us Friulians, Zico has the same meaning as a Ferrari engine placed inside a beetle.
We feel the only ones in the world to own such a wonderful and absurd car. Flamengo beat Amigos de Zico by 3 to 1. Zico scored a free kick. The first official game, on July 14, was a red-black victory over Bahia, with goals from Zico, Tita and Chiquinho. The blow devastated his legs: Zico had sprained his two knees and left ankle, a bruise on the head of his left fibula and deep abrasions on his right leg.
He had to undergo three operations on his left knee and a long period of recovery due to the consequent muscle problems. He only chose them because he would have to end his career if he didn't. One day I wanted to stop football and not football to stop me", declared Zico, who, due to the recovery, had the curvature of his left leg changed, to also change the way you step. There was also the extra motivation for holding a new World Cup in the following year.
The answer to those who already considered him a former player came in February , on the eve of the Cup, in a Fla x Flu. The rubronegros celebrations before the match were destined for Socrates' debut as a Flamengo player that day. After the game, the celebrations took place as a result of Zico's gala performance, which scored three goals - one of a foul - in the 4 x 1 Flamengo match.
The cup would be the last one raised by Galinho in Flamengo, and would not be recognized by CBFuntil , when it was made official as a Brazilian title, alongside the yellow module, which appointed the Sport and Guarani teams as representatives of Brazil in the Libertadores. However, shortly thereafter, the CBF went back, recognizing only Sport-PE as the only champion of by court order. Zico decided to stop playing in the second half of Flamengo had lost the State to Botafogo.
His last professional game at Flamengo ended in the best way: a victory over Fluminense, in Juiz de Fora, in a game in which Galinho did not spare dribbles, throws and an unforgettable goal in his specialty. To finish with a goal and just the way I like it most: foul. In Japan, he played for Sumitomo Metals and his original club, the current Kashima Antlers, from to , when he left the fields for good.
His time in Japan, together with other famous players already retired or about to retire, is today pointed out as one of the biggest reasons for the popularization and professionalization of football in the country, which would finally promote the first professional edition of the Japanese championship in The goals of the final, however, came from players inspired by Zico playing in the newly professionalized Japanese football: by Kashima, his former teammate from Flamengo Alcindo; by Verdy, the former opponent of Vasco Bismarck and also Kazu, a Japanese who played in Brazil.
Zico retired after the end of the second edition of the J-League, with Kashima placing third in the overall standings. Even though he failed to win the Japanese championship title, Zico was very revered in the country, who learned to love football a lot because of the charisma and performances of the veteran idol, who even won a statue in his honor there.
Oswaldo de Oliveira, who would coach Kashima, summed up Zico's importance for the club: Zico participated in the formation of Kashima even in the beginning, when the club was an amateur. His concept is fabulous and even today the fans bring him a banner in every game. Antlers was going to be a factory club, and Zico made him big, gave him history and tradition. The occasion was famous for being the only time that Zico entered the field with the Cruzmaltina shirt. He continued to play football a year after leaving the lawns, but in the sand.
Back in Brazil, where he founded the club that bears his name, CFZ Centro de Futebol Zico , he participated in the Brazilian team in the first two world championships of the so-called beach soccer and , being champion in both and, in the first, also the top scorer and best player. International career Brazilian Olympic Team For the Pre-Olympic Team, Zico was one of the highlights of the national team during the qualifying tournament for the Olympics, having even scored the qualifying goal.
However, in an unexplained way, he was cut from the team that went to the Games in Munich. His disappointment at the absence made him think about quitting playing at the time. Later, the press reported that he was not summoned because of a problem that his brother Nando had with the Military Dictatorship.
Actually, everyone who was in command was in the army. It was what was in charge at the time. Antunes, did not accept signing a drawer contract with Fluminense and, with that, the guy who was in the military, from Fluminense and CBD, said he wouldn't go to the Olympics either.
In Edu was not, and everything was commanded by the military. If something had happened, I wouldn't even be taken to the Pre-Olympic Games. There was no point in taking me out because of that four or five months later. He competed in three World Cups, having not experienced the taste of the world title.
His only cups for the National Team were won in the year of his debut, the Rio Branco Cup, the Roca Cup, the Oswaldo Cruz Cup, the Atlantic Cup and the US Bicentennial Tournament in which he scored, in the 4 x 1 against the Italy, one of his most beautiful goals, dribbling three opponents and kicking left foot in the goal by Dino Zoff. He also won the England-Brazil cup, played in a single game at Wembley in , when he scored the winning goal of against English Team.
His debut came in a valid match for Rio Branco. It was against Uruguay, in Montevideo. Scoring goal: with the game tied at 1 x 1 and with Rivellino and Nelinho expelled, Zico scored the winning goal in a free kick at the end of the match. Only in would Brazil again win the Uruguayan National Team at her home.
What would be his first goal in the tournament ended badly canceled: at the end of the debut in the first group stage, against Sweden, the referee Welshman Clive Thomas ended the match when the ball was in the air after a corner kick , before Zico's header made her enter the net. He scored against Peru, from a penalty, his first World Cup goal. He said goodbye to the Cup in the match against Poland, the last of the second group stage, when he suffered a serious muscle problem when he caught his ankle in a move with opponent Zbigniew Boniek - if Brazil passed the final, Zico would not play.
The team had to settle for the decision of the third place, won after being tied in points and with less goal difference than the host Argentina, after the victory of against Peru, the great scandal of the tournament. Perhaps a greater drama came at the World Cup, where Brazil was experiencing enormous favoritism.
Zico scored four times in the world cup: foul against Scotland, in a game in which he met three Liverpool players against whom he had played six months before: Alan Hansen, Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness; two against New Zealand one of them by volleyball ; and another against Argentina.
The game was already valid for the second phase, where a group formed also by Italy would give a place for the semifinals. Brazil went to the game against the Italians and could draw to pass the stage: both had beaten Argentina, but Brazil had scored one more goal. Everything went wrong in the group's decisive match. Azzurra coach Enzo Bearzot had already seen Zico's skills in , when he trained the Rest of the World Team in a friendly against Argentina commemorating the country's one-year anniversary at the World Cup.
Zico had arrived in Buenos Aires minutes before departure, entering the second half. He scored the equalizer and led the FIFA team to victory in the comeback To annul Galinho, he climbed the violent Claudio Gentile, who had already stopped Maradona, based on many strokes, in the match against Argentina.
In the only moment in which he managed to break free of Gentile's heavy scoring, Zico gave the pass to Socrates' goal, which tied the match In another moment, the opponent even pulled Zico's shirt so hard that he ended up tearing it. The move was inside the penalty area, but the penalty was not scored by Israeli referee Abraham Klein. Italy won by 3 x 2 in what Zico, until then tied with West German Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in the artillery of the world prize that would be with the executioner Paolo Rossi, who had scored the three goals of the Italian victory in that match and would make others three later , considers his "biggest frustration in football".
The third and final Zico Cup would be that of His response for the National Team would come in April, in a friendly against Yugoslavia. In the Brazilian victory by 4 x 2, he scored another of his most beautiful goals, invading the opponent's area leaving behind a row of four defenders and still getting rid of the goalkeeper before concluding for the nets. Still, due to his recovery, he went to the World Cup as a reserve.
He played three of Brazil's five World Cup matches against Northern Ireland in the first round, with Brazil already ranked; Poland, in the round of 16; and France, in Wednesdays. He did not score goals, losing the best chance he had to do so, a penalty against the French. As it was still cold in the match, Zico reluctantly hit the penalty, which he himself acknowledged to have charged badly.
The draw lasted in overtime and the place in the semifinals was decided in the series of penalties. It was Galinho's last official game for Brazil - interestingly, the ace lost only once for the National Team in the fateful game against Italy in Galinho chose not to play football anymore, having other plans: that year, during the presidency of Fernando Collor, he was National Sports Secretary, a public office he held until the following year.
Game Characteristics and Style "My business was not to make fun, it was to score. Zico is recognized worldwide for his gigantic skill in free kicks. No wonder, in , he was elected by experts as the greatest Brazilian hitter in history. To reach perfection, Zico tied a shirt at each angle, when there was no goalkeeper available, and started to practice free kicks.
The ball always had to hit the cloth - a place that the goalkeeper could hardly reach. Zico managed to train more than charges like that, practically every day. However, Zico was more than an expert hitter for fouls. In his repertoire, easy dribbling, excellent vision of the game and an intelligence above normal. For the columnist, in the history of Brazilian football only Zico performed the same efficiently, as he participated in the marking, allowing his teammates to collectively defend themselves, and as a bow and arrow player, he created like no one and attacked even better.
And with his knees kicked, Galinho combined talent with intelligence to reinvent himself on the field. He started to perform the function then called striker. Weakened physically, Zico started, especially in the second half, to become more planted in the middle of the field and in the offensive midfield, launching his companions with the generosity of a Santa Claus for the whole year. He held the position in the s and His best known project was the "Lei Zico", which modified the structure of Brazilian football, reducing the power of clubs in relation to players.
Among the topics regulated by the Zico law, there are, for example, the creation of the Superior Sports Council - an entity destined to enforce the law itself - and the organization of sports justice. The "Lei Zico", as Law 8, became known, was enacted on July 6, , and promoted and implemented the modernization of sports legislation.
It simply copied most of the devices on that one. The relationship with Collor, considered harmonious at the beginning of his role as minister, deteriorated after allies of the former president complained about the effects of the Zico Law.
One of the most controversial points of the law was the raising of financial resources for sports entities through bingo. Charged by politicians who supported him, the then president shelved the bill, enough for Zico to resign. He [Collor] shelved it. He stopped with the direct contact he had with me. After this adventure in politics, Zico returned to the pitch to play in Japan.
Beach Soccer After hanging up his soccer shoes in Zico went to play beach soccer. But, today, I need to thank for my 46 years. For the 49 years of love from my mother. For his 75 years. More than everything, for the affection from the people that know him — therefore like him. And specially for the people who don't know him — and some who cried like he was an old friend.
I've learned a thing from you, babbo. Before become a great journalist it is needed to be a great person. I have learned from him I don't need to work to be a great professional. I need to try to be a great person. As you did both. Excuse me, but I won't cry. I cry for everything. Because of that I always cry for the family. Palmeiras, loves, pains, colours, songs. But I won't cry for everything more than anything in the world, my parents. My parents which could be also called my mothers [note 4] were always ready.
A gift from God. My father never missed me even when absent by his work. I never missed him because he had that wonderful woman, Mrs. According to Mr. Joelmir, the second biggest thing in his life. Because the first one always was his love he felt for her since When they became a family.
My brother and I. Sons of the radio. Sons of a pioneer, respected economics' journalist, a recognized, innovator TV anchorman, a communication master, brilliant and labourer. I always knew I would never be in my profession nothing even closer he was. Because too few were too good in his field. Fewer could be too good fathers as he was. Even fewer were too good husbands.
Even extremely fewer were too good-spirited people. And there isn't any existing word to describe how rare and dedicated Palmeiras fan he was. But it is always worth remember that Palmeiras fans don't compare themselves. They're not more. They're not less. They're Palmeiras fans. That's enough. As he said on the announcement day of the new arena, in , as it has been written in Palestra 's locker room from to the overhaul: "To explain the emotion to be a Palmeiras fan, to another Palmeiras fan, is simply unnecessary.
And to those who aren't, is simply impossible! To explain who is Joelmir Beting is unnecessary. To explain what is my father no longer belonging to this world is impossible. As I've officially been told now, on this Thursday, November From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Joelmir Beting. Produto tido de boa qualidade, limpo e isento. Paulo website.

Right-back was the one position where Brazil currently have no tried, tested and trusted replacement. But this is far from the first time Brazil have had to deal with a high profile withdrawal from the squad prior to a major tournament. In , Clodoaldo saw his dream of retaining the World Cup with Brazil end on the eve of the tournament after suffering a muscular injury.
He even travelled with the team to West Gemany but did not recover in time to make it onto the field. But saw perhaps the biggest loss a Brazil team had to endure ahead of a World Cup, when the great Careca suffered an injury to his left thigh in a training session.
Coach Tele Santana also lost Reinaldo before the tournament, leaving Serginho to lead the line with Roberto Dinamite as his reserve. Four years later, Brazil had two casualties in defender Mozer and midfielder Toninho Cerezo. They were replaced by Mauro Galvao and Valdo respectively, but the Selecao would fall to France in the quarter-finals on penalties. Hey, LFC , we're coming, and we're bringing all the lads..
A calf injury plagued him ahead of World Cup in France, leading him the former World Player of the Year in floods of tears as he confirmed the news to the press. He insisted he could recover during the competition, but coach Mario Zagallo elected not to take the risk.
He played in two World Cups: Mexico and Italy He is perhaps best remembered, however, for the one that he missed, for he was set to be a starter in the great side of , but an injury on the eve of tournament ruled him out and he was forced to make way for Serginho.
Many Brazilian fans maintain that had Careca lined up ahead of the likes of Socrates and Zico then that group who captured the imagination of a generation with their expansive, stylish passing game, would have been crowned world champions. He was just years-old when coach Carlos Alberto Silva, who would later would become Brazil coach, showed enough faith to ask him to forge a devastating attacking trio with Capitao and Bozo. Together, the triumvirate fired Guarani to the title, with Careca grabbing his 13th goal of the season to seal the title in the second-leg of the final against Palmerias.
Careca would go on to hit 38 goals in 63 games before making the move to Sao Paulo and claim two state titles and a further national league championship as his goals for the club convinced Italian club Napoli to take him to Serie A.
