“We won that game 3–0, I scored the first goal, then Albert scored a header and the third was a goal that impressed everyone. Albert went on one on one with the goal keeper. I was running next to him, he went round the keeper, all he needed to do was just to get the ball into the empty net. But, he passed it to me & I scored. I was accepted to the Academy.
