    Story
    "Make your life dreams a reality."

    This book was more then just a story about football (soccer). This is the story of Paul Watson and his friend Matt Conrad and there quest to coach a National team. Getting the job is only the first step in setting up an entire football program. The players come to life in this book and you get a real sense of community.

    This is an inspirational story about a team no one cared about and how two men with a dream changed things for the better.

    "Great story"

    I loved this book. Great story and a great little view of life in a place you've most likely never heard about.



    If you like football and travel books you'll probably love this. If you only like one of those two it's still a very good read.
