Football News

Having the edge over Maradona on the popularity vote, and the fact that his career wasn't tarnished by nearly as many controversies, Pele rivals his Argentinian counterpart for the title of the best football in history.

The Brazilian legend is said to have scored over 1000 goals in his professional career and in many ways redefined how the game was viewed.

A true legend of the game.
