When a Player starts his training and finally, after several sessions, or weeks, or even a year, realises that he has fallen in love with the game, it is already a sign of his success. It is the passion, drive and excitement that one gets from a soccer game. Therefore, Player will need his family or friends to support his decision to give his spare time to the sport and continuous training during the weeks and months ahead.
