Pele: The only man who could change soccer in the US

The United States may just have won the women's world cup but back in the 1960s, soccer was a minority and unloved sport in the US.

That all changed when the New York Cosmos signed Pele, the Brazilian striker and at that time, the most famous footballer on the planet.

General Manager Clive Toye spent four years courting Pele to sign him up to the team. He told Witness how he pulled off his coup.
