My first football match was in class 3. In every match my big Brother always took me in defence or goalkeeping.And never let me play in strike.Then I heard a very meaningful sentence from my uncle that `What ever you want to be Be it but You must be Number 1 in your surroundings at all cost even if you want to be a Driver be Awesome in it’.
This sentence changed my life and i started following tricks and techniques of Goal keepers and Defensive players through out that i practiced and practiced and now i am best in my School. I am fat And because of that Fatness, i got a good physique.
I started playing and dragged myself to the limits and now the best strikers of my school hardly score against me.
My dream is not to be a highly respected person in my society but there are some thing those values more then dreams and that is to be a Footballer in my favorite club `Galatasary’. Nowadays i am playing in the streets to be a player i dreamed of and i am changing my playing styles everyday with new techniques.
My Big brother always played in strike and i in defense, but now he even can’t go ahead of me.
When ever i play football i forget everything and everyone. I just give all of my concentration to the match. Whenever my Dad phones me at the time when i am playing Football, my friends tells him that he is playing football, my father leaves the phone and tells my friends that he will call me later.
Even my Father doesn’t tell my friends to call me and answer the phone because my father also don’t want to my love of playing football.
