Pele in Plymouth, 1973 - archive film


Watch archive BBC footage of Brazilian football legend Pele and his Santos team playing Plymouth Argyle at Home Park in 1973.

Santos played Plymouth as part of their European tour in March 1973. Amazingly, Argyle won 3-2 in front of 37,639 people.

Brazil were, of course, the World Champions at that time having won the 1970 World Cup.
