The legendary player Pele scored the most goals in soccer.
Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, the native Brazilian scored 1,281 goals in 1,363 games in a 21-year career.
He retired from the Brazilian team in 1974.
Then, in 1975, the New York Cosmos lured him out of retirement with a $4.5 million contract, making him at the time the highest paid athlete ever.
He retired a second and last time in 1977.
