“I don’t know if we will win but we will show them a beautiful game.”

What would fútbol be without Brazil? Their philosophy of playing beautiful, attacking fútbol has produced some of the most exciting teams and players ever seen on a soccer pitch. Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Neymar are names that quickly come to mind, but before all of them, there was Pelé.

In 1958, Pelé became the youngest player to play a World Cup final. He was only 17 years old. Not only did he play, he scored two goals and led Brazil to its first World Cup title. He would go on to win two more World Cups with Brazil. A new movie, “Pelé,” tells the story of the precocious soccer player who went from living in poverty to becoming Brazil’s most celebrated fútbol legend.
