Amarildo Tavares da Silveira

Amarildo Tavares da Silveira, also known as "Amarildo" (born in Campos, Rio de Janeiro, June 29, 1939) was a Brazilian football (soccer) player who played as a striker.

His career lasted from 1957 to 1974 and he played for Goytacaz, Flamengo, Botafogo and Vasco da Gama, and in Italy for Milan, Fiorentina and Roma. He won one “Coppa Italia” in 1967 with Milan, and the Italian title (“Scudetto”) in 1969 with Fiorentina.

For Brazil he was capped 22 times, from April 1961 to June 1966, and won the 1962 FIFA World Cup as a replacement for the injured Pelé (and in the process gaining the nickname “The White Pelé”). He scored seven goals for his country, including three during the 1962 tournament.

On January 24, 2008, Amarildo was hired as América's head coach.cite web | title = América-RJ anuncia seu novo treinador | url=http://www.gazetaesportiva.net/ge_noticias/bin/noticia.php?chid=114&nwid=263695 | accessdate = 2008-01-28 | publisher=Gazeta Esportiva ] On January 26, 2008, in his first match as América's head coach, Volta Redonda beat América 4-2 at Estádio Giulite Coutinho.cite web | title = América-RJ perde do Volta Redonda e se complica | url=http://ultimosegundo.ig.com.br/esportes/futebol/2008/01/26/america_rj_perde_do_volta_redonda_e_se_complica_1167245.html | accessdate = 2008-01-28 | publisher=iG Último Segundo ] He was sacked by América's board after managing the team for just a week.cite web | title = Amarildo não é mais o técnico do América | url=http://oglobo.globo.com/esportes/mat/2008/01/30/amarildo_nao_mais_tecnico_do_america-354955097.asp | accessdate = 2008-01-30 | publisher=Globo Online ]
