: "I believe that football has not only shaped my life but also who I am as a person. I think that it has had such an impact on me more than anything else. I have been able to travel and see the world because of football, I have been able to meet incredible people who have inspired me because of football, and I have also been able to discover myself, because of football. I honestly believe that if I never started playing football, I would have never have had this for my life. Football actually controls me so much. If I have a great practice I feel so happy and when I am on the field all my problems disappear for that time. And if I have a bad practice it can bother me for a entire day because I am trying to figure out what I can do to make it better the next time. Everyone who doesn't play football is really missing out on so much. On an entire community” - Pato, 21 🇵🇱🇸🇪
