Edson Arantes do Nascimento was born in 1940, and he was commonly known as Pele across the world. He grew up in poverty before making a reputation for himself with the junior team of a local club in Sao Paulo state, Bauru. 

His father, Joo Ramos do Nascimento, also played professional football but had a less successful career. Pele’s family couldn’t even afford a ball for him, so he stuffed socks and shaped them into balls to kick around in order to foster his passion for the sport. Despite struggling financially in Sao Paulo, working several jobs to support his family, young Pele discovered his true gift on the field.

In 1956, soccer legend Pele joined Santos. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, when 16, played his first official match with Santos. He spent 18 years with the club, winning two Copa Libertadores and six Brazilian championships.

Develop into a young soccer star

Soccer legend Pele led the Sao Paulo state championship in scoring in 1957, his first full professional season. The following year, Santos won the league with 143 goals in 38 games, with Pele adding 58 goals, a record that still stands today.

In his debut appearance on the international stage, he scored key goals in both the semi-finals and final of the 1958 World Cup to help Brazil win the title.

Pele World Cup 1958 created a lasting impression on Brazilian football. He had attained heroic status in Brazil and had become a household figure around the world by this point. The Brazilian government has designated him as a “national treasure,” elevating his standing at home.

Coping with injuries 

Pele had great hopes for the 1962 World Cup in Chile. Pele played 426 matches for club and country during the time, scoring 488 goals. In the first match against Mexico (which Brazil won 2-0), the soccer legend Pele assisted on the first goal before scoring the second after taking out four defenders. However, a significant injury forced him to withdraw from the remainder of the tournament.

Brazil and Pele won the 1962 World Cup after winning the 1958 World Cup. By 1966, Brazil was a candidate for the throne, which helped to contribute to the Pele World Cup wins. However, Pele was hurt as Brazil was defeated 1-3 by Portugal in the group stage. He was enraged that he had not been protected by the referees and swore that this was his last World Cup. He altered his mind four years later, acutely aware of his role in history.

Retired and went back to work on field
