5. Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard
Practise every day, you are not there yet! Invest in yourself. Take that extra training and attend that extra course.
Don’t give up… Never. Is the voice in your head your best friend or your worst opponent! Become best friends with yourself on and off the pitch.

Never quit too early! Sometimes you even have some extra time to score. You’ll never know how close you are to succeeding if you quit now.
It started with a book...
Our goal is to advance and promote equality, diversity and inclusion in sports through inspiration, education and visualization. As part of this vision, we have created three different versions of the book, all featuring different characters; Steve, Lisa, Siama, who is a Muslim player that wears a Hijab.
90 Minutes is written with teenagers and young adults (12-24 years) in mind. The book is for young people that want to achieve the next level in sports, school and life in general. We all have our challenges and we can share those together to learn from it. Sometimes it only takes a different approach to make those experiences, or lessons stick. This is why we have created 90 Minutes.
90 Minutes interprets real life events, experiences and growth through the eyes of a football player. A movie based on the book 90 Minutes is in currently in the making.
