Brazil’s Carlos Alberto Dies Aged 72

Former Brazil captain Carlos Alberto has died, aged 72 from a heart attack. Alberto was the skipper of Brazil's 1970 World Cup winning side and netted the iconic fourth goal in the final against Italy.

Lauded as one of the best defenders of all time, Alberto won 53 caps for his national team, scoring eight goals in the process as he established himself as a key player in what is considered one of the greatest international sides to ever play the game. May his soul RIP.
