Collection of programmes looking at four of the most successful footballers of all time. The programmes focus on Pelé, Diego Maradona, Bobby Charlton and Johan Cruyff.
Pele Regarded by experts, retired players, current players and football fans alike as the greatest footballer of all times, this headline says it all: "How do you spell Pele - GOD"? With 1000 goals under his belt, being the youngest player to win the World Cup and being the only player to win the World Cup three times, it is hard to dispute that!
Maradona Maradona is regarded by many as the best football player of all time and was named joint FIFA player of the 20th Century with Pele. He then went on to play in four World Cup tournaments - 1982, 86, 90 and 94. In Mexico 1986 Maradona became a World Cup legend. Captaining the team, he played every single minute scoring five goals and making five assists on route to lifting the trophy.
Charlton It can be said, without a shadow of a doubt, that Bobby Charlton is one of the best international footballers that the world has ever seen, as well as being one of the most talented English football players of all times. Charlton scored an incredible 49 goals in 106 caps and was part of the victorious 1966 World Cup winning England team beating West Germany in the final at Wembley 4-2.
Cruyff Johan Cruyff was the team orchestrator, a playmaker, ammunition provider and marksman with a gift for timing passes. He won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1971,1973 and 1974, which was a record jointly held with Michel Platini, Marco van Basten and Lionel Messi until Messi won his 4th award in 2012. With an international career spanning over 10 years as a Dutch international, Cruyff played 48 matches, scoring 33 goals. The national team never lost a match in which Cruyff scored.
