Make your life dreams a reality.

This book was more then just a story about football (soccer). This is the story of Paul Watson and his friend Matt Conrad and there quest to coach a National team. Getting the job is only the first step in setting up an entire football program. The players come to life in this book and you get a real sense of community.

This is an inspirational story about a team no one cared about and how two men with a dream changed things for the better.

Great story

I loved this book. Great story and a great little view of life in a place you've most likely never heard about.



If you like football and travel books you'll probably love this. If you only like one of those two it's still a very good read.

what a great story

I was captuvated from the moment it started to the moment it finished.
Truly a great listen and left you wanting to know more. Hope there is a follow up one day to bring us all up to date.
Its great to see someone start a dream and make it a reality not just for themsepves but others as well.
A story of selfless dedication to a sport that is loved by many .but all too often highlighted for greed
