Transcript of Pele

I chose to research Pele for my biography because he has a passion for soccer and that's my passion as well. Pele's average (97) made him one of the best soccer players in the world and in history, that's something I would like to accomplish in my life. When Pele was first recruited he was 17 years old; he was asked to play for his national team, Brazil. He also influenced me because he was the best in his time and worked hard to achieve his accomplishments. These are my three reasons why I chose Pele for my biography. One Pele has a passion for soccer that makes him amazing at it, two his average made it to one of the best players in the world, and three Pele tried his hardest to get to the top of his game.
