    THE WORLD CUP BRAZIL 2014

     

    "The World Cup is a very complicated tournament - six games, seven if you make it to the final - and maybe if you lose one game you're out, even if you're the best."― Pele

     

    "The World Cup is a very important way to measure the good players, and the great ones. It is a test of a great player." ― Pele

     

    "Of course, my father was a soccer player. He used to play very good. Then, when I was young, eight or nine years old, ten years old, I just want to be like my father." ― Pele

     

    "I always had a philosophy which I got from my father. He used to say, 'Listen. God gave to you the gift to play football. This is your gift from God. If you take care of your health, if you are in good shape all the time, with your gift from God no one will stop you, but you must be prepared." ― Pele

     

    "The first World Cup I remember was in the 1950 when I was 9 or 10 years old. My father was a soccer player, and there was a big party, and when Brazil lost to Uruguay, I saw my father crying." ― Pele

     

    "If I pass away one day, I am happy because I tried to do my best. My sport allowed me to do so much because it's the biggest sport in the world."― Pele

     

    "If you don't give education to people, it is easy to manipulate them." ― Pele

     

    "Brazil eats, sleeps and drinks football. It lives football! "― Pele

    "Sport is something that is very inspirational for young people." ― Pele

    "The bicycle kick is not easy to do." ― Pele
