The world's greatest Number 10 casts his expert eye over the finest attacking players to grace the World Cup - the strikers, playmakers and goalscorers who have captivated billions with their footballing prowess and produced memorable performances in the world's most illustrious sporting competition. As a three-time World Cup winner and acclaimed as the best player in the sport's history, Pele is perfectly placed to run the rule over an all-star cast of legendary footballers through the decades who have stamped their unique personality on the tournament. Combining a selection of outstanding photographs with his perceptive insight and opinion, Pele profiles a 20-man squad packed with extraordinary talent: maestros like Cruyff, Maradona, Zidane and Puskas; players such as Charlton, Garrincha, Zico and Socrates; who thrilled with their dashing forward play; lethal goalscorers such as Eusebio, Muller, and Ronaldo; and the less celebrated Number 10s who may have shone only briefly, but made a dramatic impact - Hurst, Rossi, Fontaine, Owen and Kempes. Reflecting on his own dazzling career and sharing a fund of wonderful World Cup memories, Pele celebrates the men who have made the World Cup so special.

About the Author

Edson Arantes do Nascimento - 'Pele' - is the only player to have won three World Cups. He announced his astonishing talent to the world as 17-year-old goalscoring winner with Brazil in 1958, repeated the feat in 1962, and then completed the hat trick with arguably the greatest team of all time in 1970. Scorer of over 1,200 goals in a 22-year career, and a hero to supporters of Santos, Pele blazed a trail for soccer in North America in two seasons with New York Cosmos, before finally retiring in 1977. In his ambassadorial roles for his country, the UN and UNICEF, Pele continues to enjoy the love and admiration of millions around the world, fitting acclaim for the man who described and defined football as 'the beautiful game'.
