Donovan Scoring against Algeria in World Cup - Visualising Success

This week was the first without school and club training, so it was just watching, playing and doing it again everyday.. all 30 hours of it this week. I trained roughly 5 hours by myself today and watched world cup and youtube for another 5, so I feel all worn out, but only have myself to blame as I left 1 third of the weeks training on the last day of the week. Whatever, all this training is making me a better player so it’s all worth it. Especially when I see some special celebrations like Landon Donovan scoring against Algeria, or Suarez scoring a nice one against Korea. I dream of scoring goals like they did every day, just seeing the joy on people’s faces and the noise and everything.. wow it would just be unbelievable. I am always playing scenarios in my head like I make my debut as a late substitute for Chelsea against Man United in the champions league semi final and score a stunner from outside the box into the top corner, and then pretend there is a crowd in front of me to celebrate to!

I don’t have much to say on if I improved or not as I am not playing games or anything. But one thing I can say is that I’m improving on my juggling, it’s getting alot better these past few weeks because I’m doing it constantly during training with myself. So now I can bounce it on my shoulder, head, chest without the ball getting away from me.

In 2009, I was an average soccer player with a dream. I started this blog to document my journey from local underdog to getting offered over $100,000 in soccer scholarships, a contract to play professionally and the experience of playing in Europe.
