  1. Well, that’s irrelevant since most strikers will also play against poor opponents here and there.@rattlehead

    Pele scored 700 goals against prisoners, actors, etc @Rattlehead

    Poor Pelé as it must have been very hard and difficult games against prisoners, actors, etc…LOL! That is such a good one @Rattlehead as when i read your post i allmost died at laughing and Still can’t stop laughing…Pelé seems to be kind of X-boxer who has taken such heavy hits on his head that FIFA decided to make him the icon and role model for the global football as Reagan was acting president with dear Nancy with his side and in the meanwhile Bush and his family were pulling the strings…Pelé such an epic parody…


  2. He already is a legend and his status will continue to grow, just like Che Guevara. The most iconic player in history.
