Injury limited him to just two games when Brazil retained the world title in 1962, but Pele was the emblem of his country’s World Cup triumph of 1970 in Mexico. He scored in the final and set up Carlos Alberto with a nonchalant pass for the last goal in a 4-1 victory over Italy. The image of Pele in a bright, yellow Brazil jersey, with the No. 10 stamped on the back, remains alive with soccer fans everywhere. As does his trademark goal celebration — a leap with a right fist thrust high above his head.
Pele likened the save – one of the best in World Cup history – to a “salmon climbing up a waterfall. ” Later, he scored the opening goal in the final against Italy, his last World Cup match. In all, Pele played 114 matches with Brazil, scoring a record 95 goals, including 77 in official matches. His run with Santos stretched over three decades until he went into semi-retirement after the 1972 season. Wealthy European clubs tried to sign him, but the Brazilian government intervened to keep him from being sold, declaring him a national treasure.
His grace, athleticism and mesmerizing moves transfixed players and fans. He orchestrated a fast, fluid style that revolutionized the sport – a samba-like flair that personified his country’s elegance on the field. He carried Brazil to soccer’s heights and became a global ambassador for his sport in a journey that began on the streets of Sao Paulo state, where he would kick a sock stuffed with newspapers or rags.

“He said that he would never play if he had to stop every time he heard those chants, ” said Angelica Basthi, one of Pele’s biographers. “He is key for Black people’s pride in Brazil, but never wanted to be a flagbearer. ”Pele’s life after soccer took many forms. He was a politician — Brazil’s Extraordinary Minister for Sport — a wealthy businessman, and an ambassador for UNESCO and the United Nations. He had roles in movies, soap operas and even composed songs and recorded CDs of popular Brazilian music. As his health deteriorated, his travels and appearances became less frequent. He was often seen in a wheelchair during his final years and did not attend a ceremony to unveil a statue of him representing Brazil’s 1970 World Cup team. Pele spent his 80th birthday isolated with a few family members at a beach home.
Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, in the small city of Tres Coracoes in the interior of Minas Gerais state on Oct. 23, 1940, Pele grew up shining shoes to buy his modest soccer gear. Pele’s talent drew attention when he was 11, and a local professional player brought him to Santos’ youth squads. It didn’t take long for him to make it to the senior squad. Despite his youth and 5-foot-8 frame, he scored against grown men with the same ease he displayed against friends back home. He debuted with the Brazilian club at 16 in 1956, and the club quickly gained worldwide recognition. The name Pele came from him mispronouncing the name of a player called Bile.
He went to the 1958 World Cup as a reserve but became a key player for his country’s championship team. His first goal, in which he flicked the ball over the head of a defender and raced around him to volley it home, was voted as one of the best in World Cup history. The 1966 World Cup in England — won by the hosts — was a bitter one for Pele, by then already considered the world’s top player. Brazil was knocked out in the group stage and Pele, angry at the rough treatment, swore it was his last World Cup. He changed his mind and was rejuvenated in the 1970 World Cup. In a game against England, he struck a header for a certain score, but the great goalkeeper Gordon Banks flipped the ball over the bar in an astonishing move.

You've used different players in the defence and you've changed it up but you're still conceding these goals, do you feel you need new players there? No, about the defenders, I think now we’ve have recovered also Japhet Tanganga. It was his first game this season. He struggled a lot with his knee. You know now that he needs a bit of time to grow into the game, but I’m pleased for him to play a game today. Then at central defender I think we are good. We have to continue to work, to work. Cuti Romero comes back tomorrow in the training session.
Different sources, counting different sets of games, list Pele’s goal totals anywhere between 650 (league matches) and 1, 281 (all senior matches, some against low-level competition. )The player who would be dubbed “The King” was introduced to the world at 17 at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, the youngest player ever at the tournament. He was carried off the field on teammates’ shoulders after scoring two goals in Brazil’s 5-2 victory over the host country in the final.

You can have positive or negative moments. If you are strong mentally, if you are a top player, if you are a player of a big, big level, then there is a moment you have to put to one side a negative situation and move on. I think Harry did this. I repeat we are talking about a really, really good player and especially a good person. For this reason, our fans and also the fans of the other teams should every time clap him. Do you think the other fans should stop abusing him? The fans were scared because today he was playing for Tottenham but not for what happened for England.
Every word Conte said on not signing a defender and why all fans must clap KaneYet another game in which your team conceded first, how do you sum up a performance like that now? (Grimaces) I think for the people that today watched the game, but this is the not the first time they watched Tottenham, it was another exciting game. In one side, I have to be happy for the way, for the reaction, for the way we played in the second half of the game, but not only the way we scored two goals, but the energy, the desire, the intensity that we played.
I repeat in one side I am a bit disappointed this season because we have conceded many goals. In the other side I think that we are scoring many goals, creating chances and to attack with many players. Harry Kane was getting some abuse from the Brentford fans, singing 'you've let your country down'. Is that something that bothers him and how important was him to score? Personally, about Harry, I have zero doubt about his quality, about his mentality, about the way he approached every game and every training session.
When you play in this way for sure you create a lot of problems for your opponent. In this side I’m happy. In the other side, this is nine games in a row that we conceded the first goal. This is not positive because understand we have great character, understand that we have a great reaction, understand that we believe in ourselves but at the same time it's important to be stable for a team that wants to try to stay in a good position in the table. To concede for many games the first goal or also two goals, we have to make good reflections and try to find the solution. For me this is the first time that happened this type of situation, to concede the first goal nine times in a row the first goal (laughs) to your opponent, but at the same time it’s the first time to have this fantastic reaction of these players.
READ MORE: Tottenham player ratings vs Brentford: Harry Kane and Hojbjerg score as Tanganga struggles They showed great character, great desire, but we have to put these from the start. In our mind it was so, we wanted to start in this way. Then we conceded a goal and then we conceded another goal from a set piece. Against a team that I want to underline also is not an easy game. Brentford, don’t forget they have beaten this season important teams like City, United, Chelsea they drew at home but maybe they deserve much more. It’s not easy to play against Brentford because we are talking about a physical team. When you go to press them they play a long ball and Toney is really good to keep the ball and to play with the every striker. Every set piece in every zone of the pitch they put this ball into the box. They are physically strong and not an easy game. I want to underline this, but at the end, we could win and it's ok.
