I would like to assert that I do not consider myself a superior player in comparison to Pelé. I have long harbored the aspiration to craft a narrative of my own, etching my name indelibly within the annals of Brazilian football and the esteemed realm of the national team. Furthermore, on the present day, I have successfully accomplished the aforementioned task.

Notably, he stands alone as the sole player in history to have secured victory in three separate editions of the FIFA World Cup. The individual passed away in the month of December at the age of 82.
