What soccer player has the most World Cup medals? Considered by many to be soccer's greatest player, Pelé is the only person so far to have won three World Cup medals insoccer (or, what most of the world outside America calls football). He played in his first World Cup game in 1958, at the age of 18, helping his Rio di Janeiro team win its first World Cup title. In the next competition, four years later, an injury forced Pelé to sit out the games, but when his team won, he also took home a trophy. And in 1970, he won the championship for his Brazilian team again, in the World Cup finals in Mexico City. Pelé holds the record for most career goals — 1,281. When he scored his 1,000th goal, on November 19, 1969, he dedicated it to the needy children of Brazil. From 1995 to 1998, after retiring from professional soccer, Pelé served as Brazil's minister of sports.
