Zico turns 65 today. Here is what Brian Glanville wrote of him in the 1982 edition of his Book of Footballers, before the displays at the 1982 and 1986 World Cups that would expose a much wider audience to Zico’s brilliance.
To celebrate his birthday, Zico has launched a craft beer club bearing his name. Each month, subscribers will receive a crate of a particular style of beer. Offerings will include Bitters, IPAs, Stouts and Porters.
