    It was inspiring to see these kids want this so bad that they worked hard and made it farther than they thought. They overcame obstacles, no soil to play football on, so they built a pitch, or a space made of wood, to play on. They were very determined and accomplished what they had set out to do.

  • Taylor

    It was very inspiring to see that a group of children that had nothing but a TV to watch 'football', and when they set their minds to do something they got it done. They lived where there wasn't a football team, so they created one. They lived where there wasn't a place to practice, so they made one. They had a dream, and made it to the semifinals. Even though they came in third place, they made it further than anyone thought they would. Amazing.

    @Scott Depooter. There are many Muslim villages in the South of Thailand. The star and crescent is an Islamic symbol that's on many flags. This is a Thai village and all the language and posters are in Thai. Great football video! Inspiring!

  • Johnson Onibokun

    The starting point of all achievement is desire and great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance. The world of achievement has always belonged to the optimist as optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.

    Sometimes what we think is our biggest hinderanceis our best perfector!

  • Yvonne Godfrey

    When people dream in teams - they come up with the answers to problems that one person alone cannot imagine. Going back to the basics like taking off their shoes is the answer to all complex issues. No ego - who cares what people think about our unconventional move of playing without shoes released them into their greatness. I love youth!!!
