The Four Year Dream
Tin of lager
A whistle blows and the game starts.He knows that this is the time to shine, the time to perform.
Muscles twitch and a rush of adrenalin enters his brain.
The crowd roars as the ball is kicked in the air towards the opponent’s goal.
He hears the chant, the name of his clan and knows that he must succeed and win for his people. Energy takes him forward as he kicks the ball powerfully towards the opposition’s net.
Gasp of breath as the ball heads under the bar. Then a jolt as he awakes from his World Cup Dream!
