Edson Arantes do Nascimento​, better known as I Peeled, commissioned to write his name in gold in the history of the football... And of which way has done it. This Thursday, to the 82 years, died after a hard battle against the cancer, but his memory and legated will be imborrable. It will be, by always, one of the best players of the history.

It advanced to his period and achieved what seemed impossible. It marvelled with his football and created the 'jogo beautiful' of Brazil, accompanied with an interminable list of titles and the memory of his goals. Always there will be dispute by the definite number, this is true, but anybody can 'remove' that it is one of the big goleadores of the history and a legend whose shine never will turn off.

I peeled it commissioned of innovar and go back the extraordinary in daily. By very impossible that went. His electricity, speed and the capacity to find with the goal an afternoon yes and the another also marvelled in his period, but the reality is that it keeps on being a reference for the footballers. This that "all what have seen, already had it fact Peeled" resume his impact in the world of the football.

It burst into in the World-wide of Sweden 1958 and since gave loose rein to his history goleadora. In this opportunity, with alone 17 years, already was making history. Afterwards it achieved to win two more, something that until the moment any another footballer has achieved it... And it will be necessary to see if possible, because the record has it since it won in Mexico, in 1970.

The quantity of goals that annotated always will be in discussion, but the number is what less matters: it Made history in Brazil, in Santos, in the football in general... The FIFA, of official way, him contabiliza 643 targets in the club of his life, with a total of 767 goals to his name. In the country sudamericano, however, attribute him more: Ones say that they were 1.091 goals with the Saints and 1.282 in total; 448 in friendly parties.

A legacy imborrable

I peeled it has changed flatly and reencuentra with the big stars in the sky, but his memory and legacy will follow more latent that never. By something promoted the 'jogo beautiful' that in Brazil have commissioned to give continuity and that, now more than ever, will be a reference for the 'cracks' of the 'canarinha'.

I peeled always it will be remembered by all what gave to the football, by how created what seemed impossible and by his magic with the balloon in the boots. It went out in scene to dazzle in the world-wide panorama to his 17 years and, although it has left to the sky, will be still in the memory of all by always.
