Massagno TI (Switzerland)
Teams: FC Thun 1898 - West Ham United FC
I was goalkeeper of our school class at the annual tourney. Our team was far superior to all our opponents. When we were leading 5:0 or something like that in the final game I was talking with our subs which were seated behind the goal. The opponent's striker converted a kick-off into my net directly following our 5th goal when he saw my little spell of disconcentration
. We won 7:1 or something like that. It must have been my lone goal against the whole afternoon..... It still wasn't the best of moments to live through
PS A thing that really haunts me is that I've never been able to score a goal with a header. I usually play with some colleagues on schoolyards on Sunday afternoons and they happen to deliver crosses onto my head but I simply can't get that bloody ball into the net - I'm wearing glasses during play....
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
