Pelé – Greatest Soccer Player In History
Rolex Super-Coolness Pelé The King Of Football
Gets A Kick Out Of 5 Decades Of Wearing Rolex
Since we are heading into the Finals for the FIFA World cup, I thought I would share this story of the greatest soccer player in history! In the world of Sports, there are players who are considered to be the best in history. In basketball we have Michael Jordan, who has also been a lifetime Rolex man; and in the world of soccer, Pelé is considered to be the all-time best. Pele has worn his trademark yellow-gold Rolex Day-Date for decades, as seen in this recent photo.
Pelé was born Edison “Edson” Arantes so Nascimento in October of 1940 in Brazil. During his amazing career which ran from 1956 to 1974 he scored 760 official goals, and 541 in league championships, thus, making him the top scorer of all time!!! In his career Pelé scored a total of 1281 goals in 1363 games.
Pelé is pictured below with David Beckham who is considered the greatest soccer player playing today. David Beckham is also a Rolex man and wears a Rolex DEEP-SEA.
Pelé is widely considered to be not only the most famous soccer/football player in history, but also the best. To this day,Pelé is the winningest soccer player in FIFA World Cup history remaining the only player to have won 3 Wold Cup Winners’ Medals (1958, 1962 and 1970). Pelé was also received a special recognition award from the FIFA World Cup for the title of “FIFA Player Of The Century.”
Pelé’s Amazing Career
Pelé was born Edson Arantes do Nascimento in Três Corações, Minas Gerais, Brazil on October 21, 1940. Pelé’s father was a soccer player and named oldest son after Thomas Edison. Edson was nicknamed Pelé when he was a young man, which was based upon his favorite soccer players name, who’s nickname was Bilé.Pelé was a young soccer prodigy and went on to become the greatest soccer player of the 20th Century!
