77 days to go

With 77 goals across 92 appearances, Pele is Brazil’s all-time leading scorer.

The man dubbed ‘O Rei’ (The King) signalled his intentions from his very first Seleção appearance in July 1957.

Thrown into a game against his nation’s great rivals, Argentina, at the age of just 16 years and nine months, Pele marked the occasion in what would become typical style: with a goal.
