Pele has been praised of making football look the way it is now days. The only player to have never played in Europe but regarded as the best of all having won three World Cup for Brazil in his career. The only player to do so for his country so far. The gifted legend died at the age of 82 years after dying of colon cancer. He will always be remembered in the hearts of not only Brazilians but the world of football at large.
As said earlier, he was given the name Pele for his magics in the field. The real name of Pele is Edson Arantes do Nascimento born in states of Minas Gerais in Brazil in 23 October 1940. He was 1.73m of height. He played as a forward (number 10) for New York Cosmos and Santos FC of Brazil. Marcia Aoki and Assiria Nascimento are his two wives. Edihno, Sandra Regina and Joshua Nascimento are among his children. He won multiple honours with New York Cosmos and Santos together with Brazil national team. Actually he is the best of all. RIP Legend
