The famous no goal Pele in Mexico 1970
Mexico 1970 was the last World Pele. Brazil, known as King le football, Aztec closed at its stage championship started in World 1958 While still a youth. A team playing football dream, O´Rei, He won his third World Cup after those achieved in 1958 Y 1962, something that has not yet been reached by anyone. Only fellow Brazilian Ronaldo, with two World Cups and a runner in France 1998 It comes close.
The first World Championship in Mexican lands (the appointment would be repeated in 1986), left many plays, goals and anecdotes which passed into history but certainly, one of the highlights and most remembered not only the tournament but of all World, It was a play that happened was not a goal. We speak as the goal that never was Pele.
Would not know whether the move as an error rate, as genius or both. Pele received assistance from Tostao in the semifinal against Uruguay. In a play which had not yet seen, Pele feinted without touching the ball Ladislao Mazurkiewicz, considered the best goalkeeper in the World, leaving him sitting. That was the genius part of the move.
Part of failure came when the Brazilian star after sitting Uruguayan guardamete, He sent the ball outside the goal completely empty in fact almost unprecedented in his career. As we stated above, He not complete the move in a goal but neither was needed. Brazil won the championship, Pele made history and that fabulous dribble without the ball was engraved forever in the wonderful history of the World Cup and here in Colgados for football we have told you.
PD: We attach the video to not lose detail of the excellent play up the Brazilian star and the excellent Uruguayan goalkeeper.
