Manoel Francisco dos Santos (28 October 1933 - 20 January 1983), known by the nickname "Garrincha" ("little bird"), was a Brazilian footballer who helped the Brazil national team win World Cups of 1958 and 1962. He is considered one of the best dribblers in football history, and the best Brazilian player ever after Pelé.
- Without Garrincha, I would never have been a three-time world champion. - Pelé
- Pelé was the best but Garrincha was better. Pelé was a machine, Garrincha was an artist. Garrincha was Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney and a snake charmer all rolled into one. 
- He can dribble twenty players before scoring! – Nilton Santos, Brazilian teammate 
- He was never interested in money; he was simple and, for him, football was fun. – Elza Soares.
- Pelé was an exceptional player, but Garrincha played with the ball as a kid with a toy.
