Third String But Playing on Special Teams
It had to be against England.......some have never forgiven him !

Sad to see him go downhill , a brilliant footballer who had the world at his feet and then he fell into the bad things as many others have done in sport or music etc. His health was never the same.

Hand of god !!! Excellent player and a screwed up life full scandals after football.

R.I.P.

Pelé was a much better player at his time. World Cup 1958 was amazing - 6 goals at age of 18. world champ 58,62 and 70.

I don’t think there’s many these days who would consider Pele to still be in the top two for the fact he never played outside of Brazil.

Whilst I’ve personally preferred CR7 over Messi purely for the work he’s had to put in to go toe to toe with greatness I think the two Argentinians make up the top two all time for me, with Maradona slightly edging it for being able to do what he did during a more physical time and poor pitches.

Unfortunately there’s an entire generation that know him for his other antics; hopefully as time goes on he’s remembered purely for his artistry on the football field.

RIP Diego.

When did Diego start using coke? Was it at napoli? I feel he could have done more in europe scoring goals etc. One of the best dribblers you will see when watching the highlights. RIP. Not of my time but respect the legends of the game.

Pele’s teams where stacked. Wished he play outside of Brazil. That’s the knock on him.

There is this fantastic documentary I watched on a United flight to the UK simply titled Diego Maradona. It was incredible spectacle, made me enjoy the flight immensely. I think HBO put it together.

Is that the dude whose brother was a big drug kingpin? I don't follow sports in which you're not allowed to use your hands, so...
