Is there any chance for me ?

Hi,guys.
I want to tell a little about myself before I shall set a question...
I'm 18 years old. But I never was engaged in football professionally-I mean I have played as a goalkeeper when I was around 12-13...But it was some kind of "street football"- Small field, small gates... And I can say that we were one of the best team in our town. Then we have moved to another country and I started to play as Attacker/midfielder(I was 14-15 yo). But the last two years I didn't played football In general-I didn't have time....
But now I decided-I want to play football seriously-probably even to have football as profession...But there is one question left: am I to old for this ? I mean I will have to start Almost all over again....what do you think guys ?

I went through a similar phase, except you know..the Lebanese mentality was that an athlete = no future. I suggest you seize the opportunity, whilst having a plan B

Do your practice etc. at the same time maintain a Plan B - which would be focusing on studies in school, just in case you don't make the cut.

Remember one thing, mate. Kids nowadays are being nurtured from the age of 12! You're 18, and you *still* have the chance to nurture your body before it's too late. The only down-factor is that "careers" usually begin at 18-20...

Where do you come from, and where do you live? Are there resources in the country you're in that will allow you to be "nurtured"? (i.e. training etc..)

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

Thank you for answers.
I live in Sweden and I go to training every day(it is about one year) and I use to eat protein...So there is no quastion about my power. I think it is more then enough. And I have a bit Technics. So what I need now is your Support and a good coach...i think...what do you think ?

Thanks guys for your support !
You know-I have been thinking about what I can and what I cannot...And I whant to share my thoughts with you.
When I was 12 I started to play guitar. And after 3 years I took first place in our district and second in our town (capital of our country) among those who played 7 years. I keep on playing now too,but I do it just for fun(like before
After that I started whith bord tenis and billiard. And after 3 year of that I got my stable second place in club in tenis and third in biliard.
...And I think now it is turn for football !

you would be a miracle to become a good pro having played so little football so far.

but don't give up on your dream, the amount of very good players i know that gave up is amazing.

Exactly. It's very unlikely you'll turn professional - even if you we're you the footballer in your town or area a massive part of it is still luck - putting in the good performances when the right people are watching and so on.

That said there's no reason you couldn't have just as much fun in the amatuer ranks.

there is a funny thing.....There is quite many junior f.c. in our town . And I went to show myself in one of them. I scored one or two goals on the training and they said that I'm too bad and they didn't want to give me a second chance. But I was not upset. I went to another club that stands on higer level. And I scored 2 confident goals on their training(volley after corner kick and one-on-one)and thay said that I'm welcome. Hehe...does it depends on coach and luck or maybe something else ????
