Pel joined his first professional team at age 15, and went on to a dazzling career. He became the top scorer in the history of the Brazil national team, as well as the first player ever to win three World Cup medals. He also played for the New York Cosmos, and his charisma and grace on the field helped popularize soccer in America. Since his retirement in 1977, he has been an ambassador for soccer worldwide. This is his first book for children.
