    Old question, always interesting though.

    The spicy magic of Pelusa or the consistent, eager master of Rey Pele?

    Particularly, I remember that head goal of Pele against Italy, in
    Mexico, and the marvelous two goals of Maradona against
    England... also in Mexico.

    Gee, that Pelusa was good with hands

    Maradona was a one footed cheat who couldn't head the ball... he doesn't even make my top 10.

    Pele was head and shoulders (literally!) over Maradona.... however, the best player ever was old Georgie boy RIP.

    If Pelé and Maradona were chess players, they would both be side by side at the absolute top of the player tables.
    Pelé would be the players favourite, while Maradona would be removed from site as a 3(b).
