- thousand balls
in free throw scored my first one thousand balls is not my original wishes. But at that time, what method scored line, but for the end of the story! Do not know how long I stand against the ball, Andy Rath looked at me very nervous. I tried to keep a clear head, forget this ball for me, for my football career, my team's importance. I tried to relax and restore just calm. Suddenly, I remembered a long time ago in a youth team game I did not scored a free throw, I restrain myself not to think about it. I told myself to stand longer, the greater the chance of a clean sheet. If the kick does not feed that does not matter, there are other opportunities it! When my mind is still in debate, when the body has been waiting impatiently, I found that the ball has been kicked out. I saw the ball wonderful arc, flying over Antigua Lats open in the palm of your hand and into the net. the audience roar
almost able to torrential rain pushed down. Photographers and reporters rushed from behind the goal, and surrounded me. Hundreds of spectators jumped out of the stands, ignoring the police over the wetlands rushed to me. My shirt was stripped under Bailey
to someone for me to put the other pieces - printed above the 1000 number. I was lifted up and run around the field, tears in the eyes showed how excited I am. After the bleachers, in front of enthusiastic fans. I down, everyone wants me circling jogging a week, so that everyone take a look at my new jersey. Passing the the maraca that stadium crowded area, my heartbeat was soon past this thing finally pleased and happy for me to create a thousand balls record. I passed the grandstand audience stand up and cheer.
then, someone to replace me. I went back to the locker room, sitting there and not feel a thing; I slowly took off his New Jersey that the 1000 numbers, it neatly folded on the next stool, ready to take home as a precious thing, always saved.
the next day, I entered a thousand balls and American Astronauts KLT, Beane second moon of news, bisects the front pages of newspapers in Brazil. In my opinion, the importance of these two things simply can not be compared. Not just once but twice to the moon, of course, much more important than anything on the football field. But at that time, I still own finally broke thousands of ball mark and am very pleased. That ball scored my nine hundred and ninth games. It makes me an ideological baggage removed from this focus on a more important matter - the upcoming 1970 World Cup. partners and I
the fatherly mentor
one day, sitting under the shade of a tree away from the house, the family did not see me. Someone gave me a cigarette. This is not a mechanism for cigarettes, but do
leaves root "Xu Xu" smoke, is a completely smoke produced in Brazil dry
Stadium on Pele (3), Brazil's children take the paper roll up pumping , and child in the United States have to do with corn cigarette. I carefully looked around, Xielesiti 安布洛辛娜 are indeed not in the vicinity, I summon the courage to quit point. This is not my first time smoking. But I never asked myself sucked in, this time I want to try. We talked and worked hard, different places, can not remember the talk about what is probably nothing more than football and girls. My alertness inevitably relax a bit, looked up, his father just walked. He beckoned to us, did not say a word and left passed.
half smoke Wangdishangyi press face went white: "My goodness! enough to go home after I've had it!"
a companion ridicule said he did not see you smoking: "so what can bear? Another added: "If he had seen, you would not be sitting here he would have screwed with your ears drag you home!"
them right seems to have rational, and I certainly hope they The optimistic view is based. But I got home, to understand not matter. The father immediately called me over. I find it strange that his voice was very calm, just like in a game of football and I discussed the recent like.
"I see you smoke."
I did not speak, because I have nothing to say. I just stood in the front, look around, is not touch his eyes. He has maintained patience.
"I am not mistaken?"
"How long have you smoking there?
he was very calm, like asking me how long shoeshine rub, go to school on how long like. This is not the kind of quiet before the storm?
"I only smoked a few times, a few days ago ..."
"Bailey told me, tastes bad?, you know, I never smoked, I do not know exactly what that smell is."
I did not say a formal I did not smoke cigarettes, "Xu Xu" smoke smoked only. I also knew that made it clear that it did not. "I do not know, maybe there is not much taste." My answer was so stupid, I thought he would be a slap in the face to fight over, but he did not beat me, but I pulled in the past, seemed to be the talk like friends 's. He reached out a hand around my shoulder, open:
"explained to me that you play sort of talent, the future may become a master if you are smoking, drinking, kick bad ball to when you do not have enough physical strength has been kicked out of the ideal level. ninety minutes this yourself. "
Then he reached out of the pocket a money clip. This clip is old, thin and pitiful. He opened the clip, I see that there are a few crumpled tickets. He then went on: The
"But, if you want to smoke, better pumping your own smoke. Always very ashamed to discuss other people's smoke. Yourself to buy cigarettes How much does it cost?" Kiskiskis
I simply stretches shame. I smoked cigarettes not bought, it also does not matter, then I would think of a lot of things - I seem to see his father every Monday limped onto the football field, knees swollen like a watermelon; I seem to see in order to support his family, he uncomplainingly clean up the potty, cleaning the floor. I stared at the floor, I wish to open a hole on the ground to swallow me up, and bury my shame. The father looked at me for a long time in silence.
"Well, all right, for the reputation of our family, your reputation, and future - Ask cigarette buy, I take the money, I'll give you," I know that if I really want him, he is to give.
later, sound and a few times I think of this conversation. I know my personality. And at that age, I was easily emotional and act rashly. If he was severely scolded me for nothing, it is likely it will arouse my resistance, I became a habit die hard smoker. Of course, there is another possibility: Since I've been fond of football, but also know that smoking is indeed harmful to a professional player, so I probably will not stoop to that point. These are very hard to say, but one thing is for sure: Since the start of the day, I have not touched a cigarette, never wanted to touch it. seventh grade

The meantime, Bailey 11 times elected to the state of Sao Paulo league top scorer, especially from 1957 to 1965, he was incredible to nine years in a row put on top scorer Golden Boot, a record that no one can go beyond.
Bailey's body is not outstanding, but it has a great talent. Excellent speed, superb balance, broad vision, and amazing ball control, these are his "weapons", of course, feet and headed precision archery to help him more time knocking the goal. Bailey's career, took part in the 1363 official games, scored 1281 goals, which is the highest official documented case history.

1969, day, Pele scored in the Maracana Stadium 1000 first ball of the personal career, it was a penalty, in order to celebrate, even into the pit so the race was suspended, and later the Santos club November 19 as "Tony Lee Day "to commemorate the achievements of the number one. The Brazilian President announced Bailey as a "national treasure", and he was not allowed to transfer abroad effectiveness.
Pele once said, the Soviet team's most difficult hurdle Yassin guarded the door. This person is almost only allow Pele to feel heavy pressure. The outstanding players in the world at that time almost all the Lev Yashin "look door sigh." In 1970, the British football World "magazine named the world's best players over the past 20 years, Yassin Bailey lost in second place.
more amazing is that Billy can stop the war! 1970, Pele came to the Nigerian civil war swirling played an exhibition match in the capital, Lagos, to this end, the government troops and opposition forces agreement, a cease-fire 48 hours, because they must be seen Pele play football! even through nine

1961 "Rio - São Paulo Tournament" the Santos the team VS 弗卢米内塞 team's first 30 minutes of the game, wearing the No. 10 jersey of Santos, Pele half of the party got the ball after the completion of one of the greatest individual performances - even over the other nine players (some say 10, below said) nets score.
after the game, "Ao Yisi Pu Special" sports daily not only with a full-page coverage of this feat - "the most beautiful ever Maracana a ball. And money and also stand at the entrance of a monument to establish in the Maracana Stadium, and the same letter - "Maracana is the most beautiful one ball.
Unfortunately, "because of the poverty and backwardness in Brazil, then tape could not find" the (Billy language) - in fact, television is not careful to wash, to record other programs.
Fortunately, I happen to have on hand to retain one can prove it (over nine) indeed happened in real life, some of the stuff - 30 years ago, the magazine graphic. The
wish it (one through nine) to the "performance" look: Bailey
process: very relaxed after the first ball (his own half, the opponent has not been playing the spirit of twelve, like Maradona in 1986 VS England's "one-off" of the other side of Peter Reid as - I'm in the "six" masterpiece pseudo-classical "there will be a detailed analysis) to" left-right shake pendulum "over three opponents. followed by a "one ball" sudden fourth opponent and crossed midfield after in high-speed ball "frivolous" flashed fifth opponent after a "feint" fool leap out from the side of the first six opponents, after the variable line acceleration "avoid the the seventh opponent's Feichan suddenly to a restricted area at the top of the arc suddenly a" false stops "to let the other two opponents rushed to empty (Note: This two opponents "one after the hit from the side, after one of the case stands to reason impossible Bailey formed even just interference, and therefore has been as everyone was" off "Bailey only after an opponent of course, which is many years there has been "over nine" and "a dozen" in two different ways.) reached the restricted area, followed by high-speed in a "false shot" cheat open the goalkeeper pushed Buddhism nets. the
opponents: the top three I on this information did not specify, the failed icon display (display only behind seven), after seven - fourth EDMILSON fifth VALDO, sixth CLOYIS, seventh also is Feichan to that name ALTAIR, is wearing a 15 jersey of the 1962 World Cup team-mate, eighth PINHEIRO, JAIR ninth. MARINHO, the same team-mate in the 1962 World Cup, the draped jersey on the 12th, the tenth goalkeeper CASTILHO equally in the 1962 World Cup team-mate, Phi 22 jersey.
However, for such an absolutely unprecedented and very likely unrepeatable goal (not only "over a nine, but also has been" Zhong Drang - indeed, very yellow, very violent) Bailey himself was only advertised so - " to avoid the entire 弗卢米内塞 team interdiction scored the ball in the attack of the goalkeeper is a famous goal. "
in his autobiography, it is only a band before. the king of
achievements Bailey world number one status in addition to his 22-year football career goal, the most important natural is World Cup. Sweden in 1958, people on the TV screen to see a young face, the 17-year-old boy to turn around and perform to the camera darts, surrounded by the beauty of the quite shy, this is the fledgling Bailey. The beginning of this competition, Bailey only Brazilian team's bench the first two games has not played three games of the team of the Soviet Union, although the battle, but not impressive.
perhaps Bailey is a gift from heaven for the big games, into the later rounds, the 17-year-old boy suddenly became Brazil's most terrible weapons. 1/4 Finals 1 0 win over Wales, Pele scored the only goal; semifinals the 5 2 setback gorgeous French team, his hat trick; final 5 2 Down with host Sweden, Pele scored two goals Brazil won the World Cup for the first time.
this moment has become a classic about the 1958 World Cup, two lenses have become eternal. One is Bailey over a defender in the final pick, volley shot score, the tease Sweden 后卫佩尔林 later said saw such a wonderful goal, he can not help but think forward to congratulate Bailey. Another lens is win, Bailey volts shoulders of teammate Didier estrous cry, the final day, Bailey was only 17 years and 239 days, which also created the World Cup final competition as well as the youngest Scorers record.
1962 World Cup in Chile, Pele played only a half opener 2-0 win over Mexico, he scored 1 goal, but then was kicked in the Second World War Czechoslovakia Bailey muscle strain withdraws exit the journey of the World Cup, but relying on the performance such as Garrincha, Brazil final cup Bailey get a second World Cup championship medals with teammate. 1966 World Cup in England, Brazil again lost Bailey, world number one was kicked in the same Portugal game, has witnessed the team was eliminated on the sidelines.
two competitions injury nightmare gave Bailey vowed to no longer participate in the World Cup to concentrate on playing football for Santos. However, in 1970, an old friend Zagallo succeeded in persuading the Bailey return to Brazil, the world number one also can not resist the lure of the World Cup, won three the Bailey
confusion. 1970 World Cup, Pele laid the world number one status. Of England, Banks saved his header, leaving a great century fighting "; Czechoslovakia, Bailey midfielder's lob is exclaimed; dealing with Uruguay, the others ball points ran around the goalkeeper, misses the target, but is still considered the most creative extraordinary. Final against Italy, Pele header opened the scoring, which is Brazil's 100 World Cup goal, "My father had a scored five headed, so this time I headed home feeling very wonderful ... "Bailey said after the game. After scoring two assists to his teammates broke, Brazilian permanent possession of the Jules Rimet Cup, Pele won three World Cup Albert achievements. The final marker Bailey's Italian defender said Borg Niqie,: "Before the game I said to myself, Billy us material made, but I was wrong." Kiskiskis
World Cup the record
from 1958 to 1970 , Bailey took part in the World Cup, got three championships, three players only Bailey to win the World Cup, he is called the King of the World Cup in history! 4 World Cup, Pele scored a total of 12 goals, second only to "aliens" Ronaldo's 15 goals in total historical shooter Goldbond, Miroslav Klose, "God" and "Bomber" Gade · Muller's 14-ball, Fontaine, 13 balls, the fourth highest in the overall standings striker. 70 years after the World Cup, Pele announced its withdrawal from the Brazilian team, on behalf of the national team played 92 games, he left the 77 goals. In 1974, Bailey announced his retirement, Santos permanently sealed his No. 10 jersey. In 1975, the New York Cosmos heavily invited Bailey back at number one in there, kicking 2 years. October 1, 1977, Bailey Memorial race on behalf of Santos and Cosmos each kicked in half, this is the last game of his football career. In 2004, Bailey was FIFA named one of the two greatest players of the 20th century. (The other is the "Kaiser" Franz Beckenbauer) the
only the unsuccessful
perfect, perfect, world number one, which are used to describe Bailey, before retiring, he has not committed any error, but retired after a fly in the ointment, so he did not continue the myth of his legs, but his mouth. Quit the national team after a strange thing in the World Cup, regardless of the Bailey optimistic about what detachment, that detachment certainly no good end in the World Cup, he is not optimistic about the team repeatedly win. Such as the 2002 World Cup, Pele favored French team did not qualify, Bailey is not optimistic about the Brazilian team won the crown. The 2006 Billy optimistic about Brazil, Brazil, Zhibubaqiang. Although it is so, but Bailey's prestige is still the football first. Before the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, Pele predicted Germany would overcome Argentina, Spain will advance to the semi-finals he finally broke his big mouth record.
