Superstar Pelé is credited with giving soccer what enduring nickname?
The sweet science
The sport of kings
The beautiful game
Known as “Jogo bonito” in his native Portuguese, Pelé (Brazilian player Edson Arantes do Nascimento) is credited with creating (or at least popularizing) “the beautiful game” as a sobriquet for soccer, even using it in the title of his 1977 autobiography. He later lamented that the game’s recent development of focused and lifeless offense has rendered it no longer “bonito.”
