Brazilian legend Pele will present England’s player of the year with his trophy at St George’s Park at the beginning of next month, according to fifa.com. The three-time FIFA World Cup winner will be guest of honour for the inaugural awards ceremony on Sunday 3 February. In addition, Pele will be present for England’s high-profile friendly with Brazil at Wembley three days later. His attendance is a major coup as both events are a central component of the FA’s 150th anniversary celebrations, which will be launched at a lavish ceremony at the Connaught Rooms in London on Wednesday. The place where the first FA rulebook was drafted in 1853, the Connaught Rooms represent a significant venue in the game’s history.
