    O Rei Pelé

    by andal13 Written Nov 27, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Edson Arantes do Nascimento was born in Minas Gerais (Brazil) in 1940; when he was 16 years old, he began to play football at the Santos (Santos Futebol Clube), and then it began the legend of O Rei Pelé (King Pelé). He was World Champion with the Brazilian team in 1958, 1962, and 1970, but until now, he keeps on "playing" at the political and social fields.
    Pelé is considered one of the two best football players of the history; who is the other one? See next tip.
