So an event that takes place once every 4 years (one month/7 matches depending if you get to the final) is now the only criteria right??? And the way you're saying it, people will think Pele won those world cups playing along side bums, which is absolutely not the case. He was always in a team stacked with great players at that time, and more important is that those players played to their full potentials when required of them, they weren't just expecting Pele to do magic. Hell they even won one of Pele's 3 worldcups "without" him cause he was injured. It's crazy how people just tend to ignore how bad other Argentine players (who are very talented by the way) play and the fact that Messi plays a different role for Argentina. Ronaldo has more world cup goals than Pele, do you think he's better than Pele??? i personally think he is but not just because of his worldcup goals.
