George Best & Pele

Today is the beginning of 2010's Soccer World Cup in South Africa, and what a better way to celebrate than with a photo of two of the best soccer players in history, George Best & Pele. Photographed in April 1978 in California, Best presented Pele an award for being "The Best Soccer Player".

George Best decided to wear his soccer uniform for this ocassion, while Pele opted for a red leisure suit (they were very popular in the 70s) with a light colored turtleneck, mixing the bold styles of the 70s with a 60s Mod touch.

Maybe it would be better if Pele wore his soccer uniform and George Best a 3 piece suit!!
