“I was born to play football, just like Beethoven was born to write music and Michelangelo was born to paint.”
During his impoverished youth, Pelé learned to dribble a soccer ball using a sock stuffed with rags. By the time he was 15 years old, he signed a professional contract with Santos. By the time he was 16, he scored his first goal in international play. And by 17 years old, the kid who promised his father he would vindicate Brazil by winning a World Cup for his country did just that in 1958. He changed the game by scoring a hat trick against France, making good on his promise.
Eu nasci para jogar futebol, assim como Beethoven nasceu para compor música e Michelangelo nasceu para pintar”
Em sua infância humilde, Pelé aprendeu a driblar usando uma meia estofada com trapos. Quando ele tinha 15 anos, assinou um contrato profissional com o Santos. Aos 16 anos, marcou seu primeiro gol em uma partida internacional. Aos 17 anos, o garoto prometeu ao pai que iria vingar o Brasil e vencer a Copa do Mundo, e fez exatamente isso em 1958. Ele revolucionou o jogo marcando um hat trick contra a França, cumprindo a sua promessa.
