Something needs to change! After reading this article, I have never been more convinced of what we are doing at the AFA is the RIGHT THING!
I believe, what the AFA coaches provide players is the best on the coast if not Australia.
The AFA have a number of AFA Alumnus overseas currently living their dream like Nikoli, Blake and Brad. Then there is Lewis, who is at the Roar captaining the Under 20s squad - an impressive achievement, as he only joined the Roar this year.
... and Charlie, off to Scotland later this year to train with Celtic FC - what an amazing opportunity. Charlie was chosen out of over 100 talented footballers from Australia and New Zealand.
If the boys themselves decide that being a professional footballer is for them, then they are in the right place!
See you at Wembley...
Remember: If your dream does not scare you, it is not big enough!
