beautiful game. I loved the passion. The chants and the roars. The excitement. But playing soccer for a living was just a distant dream. At age 12, I was told I was not good
enough. I was rejected from representing my region. I didn’t even make my clubs development squad. There were millions upon millions of
younger kids, all over the world that were better than me. But I still had that thought in my head Nick, imagine… walking out the tunnel to a packed stadium. Imagine scoring a goal and celebrating with thousands of your home fans. The possibility excited me so much that one day, I decided to go for it. My ability was limited and I had no

I got invited to train with the U/20 national team. and finally… I was offered a contract to play professionally in Europe.
