INFO

Felix was one of the best defenders in Benfica history. He played as centre half but also in WM system he was used as left wing half and inside left. He was excellent defender, great sense of positioning and intuition, great heading and insuperable in jump, with good technique and athleticism. At the time of 49/50, Felix gave invaluable contribution to the conquest of Latin Cup, the first major international accolades benfiquista done. The mastery that provided even revealed that if it came to talk of Sport Lisboa e Felix. His name began to circulate in Europe, at a time when football was not, nor more or less, projection media of our time, with television in its infancy and Portugal not see it yet. The four consecutive finals of the Cup of Portugal (48/49, 50/51, 51/52 and 52/53, as in 49/50 was not disputed) were a milestone today unparalleled repertoire in red, because have resulted in so many victories. Only Bastos, Joaquim Fernandes, Moreira, Arsenic, Roger and Felix did the full. He came to the National Team in March 1949, receiving the testimony of belenense Feliciano. With the corners, would play a total of 15 games, a time when the Portuguese football was late in his statement, particularly against counterparts that had adopted the most complete professionalism. Fired up in Vienna, opposite the combined Austrian national, a tragic defeat (9-1). He was accused of misconduct in the preparation stage for the defiance. The Federation fined him and Benfica also multiplying the parade, a tale that reis settled. With the emotional foundation weakened by defeats, by implication, by fines and by critics, Felix did not react well to punishment, especially indignant rebuke monetary stayed with Benfica. Three weeks later, the play was Setúbal, 18 October 1953. In Campo dos Arcos, Benfica flopped, a resounding 5-3. Even today it is said that the goals sadinos error resulted from unusual central defender. Although even notice the exaggeration, it is undisputed that the cabin, the meeting ended, Felix took off his shirt, threw it ostensibly to the ground and stepped on it in a fit of temper. The club president, stupefied, witnessed the scene. The decision, that, soon. For Felix was the irrevocable parting of Benfica. It was once a great player, with only 30 years, served as an example to future generations. This was how the discipline at Benfica. A compromise was forbidden who disregarded the symbol and motto of the club. Even if it was a gesture untimely. Even if played by an athlete irreplaceable. An athlete who did not respect sacred values ​​even more sacred. An athlete's singular class of Felix. He died in 1988.
