Garrincha was a famous Brazilian footballer of the late 1950s and early 1960s. He was an integral part of the Brazilian World Cup winning sides of 1958 and 1962. He was born with a disability which resulted in his left leg curving inward. As a result he was able to provide a very quick turn of pace and some regard him as the greatest dribbler of all time. In Brazil, he is one of the few players who is frequently compared to Pele.
He has an extremely high dribbling accuracy and speed stat, and is an accomplished finisher. He was almost famous for his 'banana' style free-kicks.
