You set the world alight with brilliance

You redefined the beautiful round leather game

Called football with sheer skill and panache

Diminutive, we thought height mattered most

Till your zappy moves made all the difference

 in a match that’s emblazoned in the

memory of the world forever  

It is not often that we see your kind who

Blaze a different trail for generations to follow

Beyond the streets of Boenos Aires

Across the world where fields small and big is found

Your ingenuity gave the game is sweetest reckoning

Like the gods your name evokes inspired display

In those to whom football is passion

We won’t remember your struggles

They only show that the one with the hand of God

Had the frailties and weakness of man

Your name even became a metaphor for political dribblers

Here the world bids you farewell

Thank you for all the pleasure you gave the world
