A bronze statue of Brazilian football legend, Pele will be unveiled in June 2 during a Brazil-England friendly game at the Maracana Stadium Brazil.

The statue which is currently worked on by prominent Brazilian sculptor, Ique captures the goal the 73 year-old ex-footballer scored in Brazil’s 4-1 win against Czechoslovakia during the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

It weighs 300-kilogram (660 pound) and the sculptor admits it is a difficult work, “it is the moment when Pele jumps and pumps his fist into the air to celebrate his goal,” he revealed.
