    Now, children don’t consider yourselves laccking nothing in your quest to catch your own piece of the golden eagle. Remain focused and ask your coach how you can go on to improve your fitness, aggility and technical assets and work at these 3 aspects of your game. Do not relent even when you succeed in becoming a professional footballer. As an inssurance, study you books or learn a life trade so you can have a career when football spits you out as it sure does to all in time honoured fashion. Good show so far!
