On August 28, 1977 the “King of Soccer” left his throne vacant. This is a journey through his last match, a long farewell reported by those who were there and left a mark not only on Pelé but also on an era. Edison Arantes do Nascimento, known in the whole world as Pelé, is almost 37 and wears the N.Y. Cosmos jersey: his body is worn out, 20 glorious seasons on his shoulders and the golden years of retirement ahead. Some 40 years later, a documentary features the last ninety minutes played by the first real God of modern soccer. A lonely and almost forgotten challenge; indeed, one month later, a world broadcast of an amicable match between Cosmos and Santos – the only teams in Pelé’s life beside the Brazilian national – gave him the opportunity to wave goodbye and quit after a free kick followed by a goal.
