Pele and the Eight Themes

Cultural Interaction

Pele spread the love of soccer around the world, making it very popular. He was the role model to many, so kids started to play soccer, spreading the sport around the world, and gave Brazil a very high rank on the international soccer rankings.


Pele was involved in economics because he was paid for what he did, making him very rich. He also inspired other young players to continue, some of them becoming professional, which led them to get paid. He ultimately led to a boost in soccer sales, making the soccer world more money, making it more influential to younger players looking for money.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
