Coming up on today's show: Pele!

Posted by Daniel Krieg

Tune into ESPN2 at 5:30pm ET as the show welcomes arguably the greatest player in the history of football: Pele!

We asked Steve Nicol and Paul Mariner for their favorite memories of the Brazilian legend. Here's what they had to say.

Steve: His header vs England in the 1970 World Cup that was saved by (England's) Gordon Banks; arguably the greatest save ever.

Paul: (As an Englishman), the treatment he received from teams during the World Cup in 1966. I think he was injured so badly he could not continue to play for the rest of the tournament. He handled the situation with dignity and professionalism.
