Brazil's top scorer, three-time World Cup-winning footballer, and The Greatest of All Time, Black Diamond of Football - Adson Arantes do Nascimento Pele. I don't know how many other names his fans called him. He is the first king of Brazil's reign in football.
Born on October 23, 1940, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. He is better known as Pele to the whole world. He won three World Cups for Brazil. The football history of 1958, 1962, and 1970 was made by him alone. He played 1 thousand 366 matches in his career and scored 1 thousand 283 goals. And he has a record of 77 goals in 92 matches for Brazil.
Pele made his debut in the Brazilian jersey on July 7, 1957. The opponent was Argentina. The Brazilian forward became the youngest goal scorer by scoring his first goal in an international match at the age of 16 years and 9 months in a 2-1 loss. Starting from that.
As the saying goes, whatever record you see your favorite player achieve, Pele has already achieved it.
In the 1958 World Cup, Pele took the field against the Soviet Union. He could not score in that match. However, he saw the net for the first time in the quarter-finals of the tournament. Pele was 17 years and 239 days old at the time of that match, becoming the youngest World Cup goalscorer.
After the 1970 World Cup, Pele proved himself as the best footballer of all time. The star forward was named the best player in that tournament.
He is the only star in the world who has 92 hat tricks to his name. Incredibly, this is nothing to the football wizard.
Zinedine Zidane, Gianluigi Buffon, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and many other names are on the list of football's best. More to come. But the title of the greatest of all time revolves around Pele and Diego Maradona.
