All roads lead to the Eusébio Square


The square of the greatest player ever could only be in the largest neighborhood of Praia.

Achada de Santo António. The largest neighborhood in the capital of Cape Verde houses the square that has the name of the greatest figure of Benfica: Eusébio da Silva Ferreira.

Refurbished and inaugurated in 2018, it is also in this pilgrimage site for Benfica fans that the Club's Supporter House in Praia is located – inaugurated by Luís Filipe Vieira on Saturday (September 7).

Inaugurated by Prime Minister Ulisses Correia e Silva, the square is totally pedestrian and was named Eusébio da Silva Ferreira in honor of the Black Panther, but also for the symbolism of having been the place that Eusébio had visited during his stay in the country in 2010.

It is also in this square that the Benfiquistas from Cabo Verde gathered to watch the football team's matches or to celebrate titles, as was the case with Reconquest.
