Typical Brazilian lazy genius.

After passing by Marzotto, Juventus and Fiorentina, the scorer of goals, became the first title in club history. In 1958-59, he achieved his personal best in Serie A, the record 14 goals. The next season, even when it started to show their dissatisfaction with life away from Brazil, kept the title. Only the shadow of the prolific striker, Tozzi scored his last goal for Lazio in 1959, but only fired after seven games, a defeat to Inter Angelillo. In February he returned to Palmeiras, after giving up a million dollar contract in a move to Lazio and Torino. In return, Brazil won the Cup in 1960, but left the team in the middle of next year. Even throw in Pottery, Fluminense and Portugal before ending his career. At the end of the 1994-95 season against Lazio, engaged in a tour in South America, dispute commemorative playing against a team of Brazilian Guarani which is giving away a trophy called "Humberto Tozzi." The meeting ended with the victory of the Romans to 3-2 with two goals from Gigi Casiraghi and goals of Fuser. Humberto Tozzi died in 1980.
