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.
