Pitch Invasion 031: “A Regular Player’s Tale”

August 26, 2016


You work so hard your whole life.

You strive, you desperately train,

You improve your game,

then relentlessly improve again,

and it all leads to that moment,

on one humid Spanish night –

when you become a hurdle,

as greatness takes flight.
