For fans, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pelé, is a hero. High level of
performance in any sport means you out of ordinary human level, but Pelé's
performance can be said to have passed any degree of human beings, every
boundary. He scored an average of a goal in every international match played, just
as a basketball player marks a series of bins in each game to do, at least in these
last 15 years. Between 1956 and 1974, Pelé scored a total of 1220 goals.
He was born in one of the largest coastal cities of Brazil, Tres Coracoes. The
summon Dico by his family, he was called by friends of football Pele. Pele is a
different phenomenon from the baseball or football. Football stars are addicted to
their teams even precede them. To achieve mythic status as a football player is very
difficult, because the peak performance is generally short - only a few players
perform at the top of their game for more than 5 years. Incredibly, Pele performed
at the highest levels for 18 years, scoring 52 goals in 1973, his seventeenth year.
