PELE AT DENS - 1989

20 years ago, the world famous feet of Brazilian football legend, Pele, were striding around Dens Park.
The superstar managed to find time to chat to school kids from Hill Primary, sign loads of autographs and present an award.
The award was "Man of the match", presented to Nigerian, Godwin Okpara.
Dens was hosting Group C matches in the under 16 World Cup Tournament. Nigeria finished top above Argentina, Canada and China.
Below are some more pictures of his Dundee Football Club visit. The wee lad he is holding is, Kristofer Johnston, who'll be 20 years old now!
