Born in a neighborhood of Sao Paulo, July 18, 1892, son of a German businessman and a black Brazilian washer, he awakened an early interest in football. The first kick that he gave was on a cow bladder. He started playing teenager, when none of the clubs in the area were professionalized. He quickly detached for his imagination, technique, style and ability to improvise. The Brazilian soccer was still in its childhood and he was amazing, at the time he was considered a star in the Brazilian amateur soccer era. At the time, the journalists considered him an extremely intelligent player in the field, because it seemed that he already knew all the secrets of football. In the medium advanced position, he introduced new techniques, such as: the short drible, the kick with body effect.
He had a crucial role in the South American Championship of 1919 (current Cup America), by scoring the goal of victory against the Uruguayans, deciding the final outcome in favor of his team. With this he was called "El Tigre". His soccer shoes were exposed in the window shop of a rare jewels store in the city of Rio de Janeiro. This team at the time became known as "Squadron of Steel".
One of his greatest achievements happened in 1928, when he scored seven goals only in a game, also breaking the record of that season.
Curious was that in 1932 he enlisted in the Constitutionalist Revolution, donating his trophies, medals and prizes to the noble cause. Another interesting thing is that he was against the professionalization of football in Brazil, ultimately refusing to sign for one more season in Flamengo. He abandoned the lawns on July 21, 1935, the day that preceded the last game, with 43 years of age. He spent the rest of his days in poverty, until September 6, 1969, in a house provided by the city of Sao Paulo.
