#1: The election of Portuguese Footballer of the Year was first held in 1970, which explains why the number of Eusebio's victories is limited to two.
#2: At the end of his career Eusebio ended up playing in the Portuguese second division with União Tomar and in the American Soccer League (the second tier of U.S. football) with New Jersey Americans. How many games he played for these clubs and how many goals he scored is unknown.
