Everything that happens between the start and finish is what truly matters.
We will be excited for the game to begin while quietly hoping it never ends.
Unfortunately, time will run out eventually.
It is hard to understand the concept of truly giving our best when the end seems so far and we believe we can make up for lost time or opportunities.
The truth is that the missed opportunities will not magically reappear but will arise through hard work and commitment to recreating these chances.
If we miss out on chances, which we will, our best effort should be put in for creating the next best opportunity. If we stay in the same place, we might as well quit.
Yours in soccer,
