This is Charlie. He doesn’t know it yet, but if he starts kicking that ball he’s going to be a star. It’s not going to be easy, absolutely not, but he’s going to get there. All he has to do is start.
He’s never kicked a ball before and his dad made him come down here. He’s hating it, everyone else seems so good. But if he kicks it and starts to run with it, he will realise it’s not as scary as it seems. Then he might come back next week and the week after and in fifteen years’ time he’ll walk out for his country at Wembley.
