  • Description

    PELE, ACCLAIMED AS THE GREATEST SOCCER STAR OF ALL TIME, SPOKE LAST TUESDAY (27 APRIL) OF HIS DECISION TO RETIRE FROM INTERNATIONAL SOCCER. HIS LAST INTERNATIONAL WILL BE A FIXTURE AGAINST HOLLAND ON INCLUDES A MONTAGE OF SOME OF HIS BEST GOALS, INCLUDING THE PENALTY. THAT MADE HIS TOTAL GOAL SCORE 1,000. THE SOUND TRACK INCLUDES A BRAZILIAN RHYTHM SONG BY PELE.

    THIS FILM WAS TRANSMITTED BY SATELLITE FROM TV TUPI IN BRAZIL, AND THROUGH TVE IN SPAIN TO THE EUROVISION NETWORK.

    SYNOPSIS: PELE, PERHAPS THE GREATEST SOCCER STAR OF ALL TIME. HE'S RETIRING FROM INTERNATIONAL SOCCER IN JUNE, AND HERE HE SAYS WHY.

    PELE SAID THAT THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYONE TO RETIRE, AND ONE MUST KNOW WHEN IT IS. AT 30-YEARS-OLD, PELE SAID HE WOULD NEVER MAKE THE NEXT WORLD CUP IN MUNICH IN 1972, AND WOULD ONLY BE STANDING IN THE WAY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANOTHER YOUNG PLAYER.

    FEW PEOPLE WOULD COMPARE THE VOICE OF PELE WITH HIS FOOTBALL. IN HIS 13 YEAR CAREER, PELE SCORED OVER 1,000 GOALS, THE ONLY MAN IN THE GAME'S HISTORY TO DO SO. THIS IS THE 1,000TH.

    PELE IS RETIRING FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SOCCER SCENE, BUT HE'LL CONTINUE TO PLAY FOR HIS HOME SIDE, SANTOS. GOALS LIKE THESE WILL CONTINUE TO FILL THE STANDS.
