An inspirational, personal story of one soccer star''s
never-say-die attitudes, and his rise to the top
Sergio Torres''s is an incredible true story of the benefits
of willpower, sacrifice, joy, and daring to dream. Imagine
you''re working in a brick factory in the Argentine city Mar del
Plata, and a 22-year-old colleague tells you he''s going to quit
his job to become a professional soccer player in Europe.
Yeah, right. Next, he blows his savings on a ticket to England,
traveling with just $300 in his pocket. He doesn''t speak English,
has no one to stay with and no work. Time passes, and you forget
about the kid-until, three years later, you turn on the TV and
he''s playing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge-mixing it against
the likes of Ballack and Drogba. After his brush with the Blues, it
isn''t long before he''s up against Wayne Rooney at a packed
Theatre of Dreams. The incredible journey of Crawley Town playmaker
Sergio Torres shows that reality can be stranger than fantasy.
