BrazillegendPeleis widely agreed to be one of the best footballers of all time, having excelled on the national and world stage for over a decade.

A prolific goalscorer forSantosand his national team, he remains part of a conversation which has expanded to include exceptional talents such as Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

GOALtakes a look at Peles achievements, including his goals, trophies and more.

The exact number of goals Pele scored in his career is a matter of dispute and figures vary, but he is reported to have found the net over 1,000 times.

According toFIFAs official website, Pele scored 1,281 goals in 1,363 games, but it must be noted that this figure includes data from a significant number of unofficial matches, such as friendly tours with Santos and the New York Cosmos.Guinness World Records, meanwhile, state that Pele scored 1,289 times in 1,363 matches.

The bulk of Peles goals were scored for Santos, where he spent the majority of his career. He scored643 goals for Santos in 656 competitive appearances. He netted64 strikes in 107 gamesfor the New York Cosmos.

TheRec Sport Soccer Statistics Foundation (RSSSF)reported that Peles official goal tally - based on competitive matches only - was767 goals in 831 games, though their overall (including unofficial games) tally varies from the others too, putting the Brazilian at1,284 strikes in 1,375 fixtures.

Pele scored 77 goals for Brazil in 92 appearances. He is thetop goalscorer of all time for Brazil.

He scored his first goal for his country in 1957 in a 2-1 defeat against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro and continued to find the net regularly through the late 1950s, 1960s and into the 1970s.

Of Peles 77 goals, 12 were scored in World Cups, with his biggest tally for a single tournament being six in the successful 1958 campaign.

His last goal for Brazil came in a 1971 friendly match against Austria in Sao Paulo, which ended 1-1.

Pele played at four World Cups and was part ofthreewinning Brazil teams: in1958,1962and1970.

The striker exploded onto the scene at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, playing a pivotal role as the Selecao clinched their first ever world title.

Brazil won the World Cup again in 1962 in Chile, but Peles influence at that tournament was unfortunately limited due to an injury sustained early in the campaign.

They could not defend their title at the 1966 World Cup as hosts England sealed glory, but reclaimed the crown in 1970, with Pele - an elder statesman among a cast of exciting stars - winning the Golden Ball.

As well as three World Cups with Brazil, Pele was highly successful with Santos during his career.

Playing in what is sometimes referred to as a Golden Generation at the club, Pele won six Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A titles and two Copas Libertadores.

Domestic glory also came in the Campeonato Paulista - Sao Paulos state championship - with Pele collecting 10 winners medals in that competition, as well as four Torneio Rio-Sao Paulo triumphs.

Having already won the World Cup with Brazil, he became a world champion at club level as Santos defeated Benfica to win the Intercontinental Cup in 1962, repeating the feat the following year against AC Milan.

In addition to two Intercontinental Cups, Peles Santos won the shortlived Intercontinental Supercup in 1968.

In the closing stages of his career, Pele won the North American Soccer League Atlantic Conference and the North American Soccer League Soccer Bowl - both in 1977.

Interestingly, Pele never won a Copa America (or, as it was known then, the South American Championship), with Argentina and Uruguay dominating the tournament during his playing days.

The legendary forward also never played in the Olympics
