What were the world's greatest players like when they were your age? Learn how the top soccer stars of all time grew up and conquered the sport. This exciting book follows twenty-eight of the best men's and women's players from their first childhood encounter with association football--whether at the school gym or a pickup game in a vacant lot--to their first appearance in a top-division match or their first international cap. For every one of them, it was a journey with its share of both tragedy and triumph. Did you know that . . . . . . as a boy, Pel practiced with a newspaper-stuffed sock or a grapefruit, because he couldn't afford a proper football? . . . Mia Hamm discovered the sport of soccer as a toddler in Florence, Italy, where her father, a U.S. Air Force pilot, was stationed? . . . at age ten, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency that threatened to end his soccer career--until Bar a offered to pay for his treatment? Illustrated with rare photos of stars-to-be on and off the field, Before They Were Stars is sure to entertain and inspire any budding soccer legend.
