WORLD CUP 1970
THE FOLLOWING LOT IS THE PROPERTY OF ITALIAN INTERNATIONAL AND 1970 WORLD CUP FINALIST ROBERTO ROSATO
Post Lot Text
The above shirt was gained as a swap by Roberto Rosato with Pele after the 1970 World Cup final between Brazil and Italy. Without doubt the Brazil team of the 1970 World Cup is classed amongst the best footballing sides of all times. The final played at The Azteca Stadium, Mexico City on 21st June 1970 before 107,000 spectators was, arguably, the greatest final of any World Cup to date. Brazil with Jairzinho, Gerson and, of course, Pele in sensational form produced a performance of football artistry, which is unlikely to be bettered by defeating Italy 4-1. Pele scored the first goal of the match, which was also the 100th goal scored by Brazil in World Cup tournaments, with further strikes from Jairzinho, Gerson and Carlos Alberto, with Boninsegna scoring Italy's solitary reply.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento (Pele) was born in 1940 and wore the famous yellow number 10 of Brazil on 110 occassions, scoring 95 goals. In more than 1,000 matches for Santos, he won nine championships in the Sao Paulo League, four Brazil Cup medals and two each from the South American Cup and World Club Championship. Without doubt, the greatest footballer ever Pele won his first of two World Cups with Brazil in 1958 as an 18 year old.
