First footballer in history to score 1,000 goals | Pelé

Brazil’s Pelé, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, became the first man to score 1,000 goals in competitive football in November 1969 after converting a penalty for Santos against Vasco da Gama in Rio. The match was stopped for 30 minutes as supporters invaded the pitch. Pelé, who turns 78 today, also made a speech appealing for better treatment of Brazil’s poor children before play resumed.
