Pele nee Edson Arantes do Nascimento learned the game of futbol from his father in Minas, Brazil. Having grown up in poverty he could not afford equipment and improvised by stuffing a sock with rags and using it as a ball. At 15 years old Pele began playing with a local soccer club and a year later became a professional player. Having played for over two decades Pele is considered FIFA’s most successful scorer, was part of three Brazilian World Cup teams and is considered the greatest player that has ever lived. His performance was so mesmerizing that he is considered a national treasure of Brazil and even kept the peace between neighboring tribes in Nigeria who called a ceasefire in order to watch The Black Pearl play.
