About Eduard Streltsov
Eduard Anatoliyevich Streltsov (Russian: Эдуард Анатольевич Стрельцов) (July 21, 1937 - July 22, 1990) was a Soviet football (soccer) player, who was nicknamed Russian Pelé. He scored 100 times for Torpedo Moscow in 222 appearances and scored 25 in 38 for the USSR. In 1956 in Melbourne, at the age of 19, Streltsov led the Soviet team to the Olympic gold medal.Streltsov played for Torpedo Moscow in the Soviet Elite League. In 1958, as the Soviet national team qualified for its first World Cup, he was ordered to join either the Soviet Army's CSKA or KGB's Dynamo Moscow, but refused (even when Lev Yashin was sent to persuade him). As a result, Streltsov was kicked off the national team and was sent to seven years in a labor camp. The world's press wrote that two teams had been seriously weakened for that World Cup, England after the Munich air disaster and the USSR due to the loss of Streltsov. He came back to Torpedo in 1965, and promptly led them to the Soviet Championship. He was incredibly important to both the USSR national football team and Torpedo Moscow. He was a highly skilled player in all aspects of his game. He was also a great passer and arguably the most loyal of all one-club men.
