Football memorabilia up for sale
Pele
Pele scored the last international goal at the 1970 match
A shirt worn by Pele during a football World Cup final and caps belonging to Bobby Moore who led England to victory in 1966 are to be auctioned.

Pele's shirt, which he wore while playing in the 1970 match, is expected to fetch up to 80,000.

Two caps belonging to Moore, relating to matches in 1962 and 1965 may be sold for up to 8,000 each.

The items are being sold by Brazilian player and coach Mario Zagallo's son and Mr Moore's family on Tuesday.

After the 1970 final against Italy, Pele gave the shirt to Mr Zagallo, who was the then team's manager. It was added to his collection of 1,500 football shirts.

Mario Cesar who is Mr Zagallo's son is selling part of his father's collection.

Christie's sports memorabilia specialist David Convery said: "Zagallo is a very famous footballing icon, who has won the World Cup both as a player and as a manager.

"The Pele shirt has a special significance because it comes from what is widely regarded as the greatest-ever World Cup final, and it was worn when Pele scored his last international goal."

Mr Moore's family will be putting up 14 items belonging to him for auction, including a silver salver presented to him which is expected to fetch up to 20,000.

Mr Convery said: "These are likely to be the last remaining mementoes linked to him to come onto the open market."
