Pele - World Cup Winner

Without doubt Pele is the number 1 World Cup legend and is the most famous footballer ever and one of the most impressive facts about Pele is that he played in four World Cups and he was a World Cup winner thee times.

Pele made his World Cup debut when he was only 17 years old in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden and he scored his first World Cup goal against Sweden in the final.

After displaying his brilliance in the 1962 and 1966 his best ever World Cup performance was in the 1970 Mexico World Cup where he was at his best and ironically the one memory a lot of people will have of this World Cup was not the any of the four goals he scored but his overall play and the save that Gordon Banks made from his header which has to be the most famous piece of World Cup action ever.
