Watch the moment when two soccer legends meet in the Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge.
In the run-up to the most watched sporting event on the planet, being held this summer in Brazil, Emirates, an Official FIFA Partner has signed two of the greatest soccer players of all-time – Cristiano Ronaldo and Pelé.
Watch the moment when our two Global Ambassadors have a chance encounter in the Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge.
Over the course of his career and in the years since he retired, Pelé continues to be known as one of the most celebrated soccer players 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 soccer 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 soccer 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.
