Watch the moment when two football legends meet in the Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge.
As a long supporter of football through partnerships with some of the biggest Clubs in Europe and with FIFA, we wanted to do something special to celebrate this, the game and those who play it both past and present. Who better to do this with than two of the greatest footballers of all-time – Cristiano Ronaldo and Pelé.

Over the course of his career and in the years since he retired, Pelé continues to be known as one of the most celebrated footballers in the world. His accolades include being named Player of the Century in 1999 by FIFA and one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century by Time Magazine.
Internationally, he has played against football icons like Franz Beckenbauer, Eusébio and George Best, while lifting the World Cup trophy a record-setting three times.
Pele’s legendary status continues to inspire fans around the world and will continue to do so this summer in his home country of Brazil.
The current FIFA Player of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo is an exciting football player, with the skill and agility to make him one of the greatest players on the pitch today. Since bursting on to the scene in 2003 when he joined Manchester United, Ronaldo has been a player to watch and watch out for.
This summer he will lead his national team into his third World Cup tournament, second as Captain. He already holds the title of the youngest Portuguese player to reach 100 caps and is one of the highest scoring Real Madrid players of all time.
