Cunha Bueno, the Paulistano goalkeeper, in action against Palestra Itália in 1917.
Zuzu, as he was known, was a goalkeeper of desperation, noted for unconventional last ditch saves executed with all parts of his anatomy.
With Zuzu in goal Paulistano won the Campeonato Paulista in 1916,1917, 1918 & 1919.
Away from football he was a coffee farmer and exporter. 
The ball in this photograph looks small. I have read that size 4 balls were used in Italy, I'm not sure if that was the case in South America too.
