Football is a team sport; but the strength and mindset of the individual players can make or break a team. While every player has their own story, there is one common trait that seems to be a secret for success on and off the pitch: Developing the mindset of a champion.

Robin Gosens on grit and determination

There has always been the discussion about what’s more important – natural talent or hard graft. For German national player Robin Gosens, the answer was clear. He accepted early on in his career that if he was to succeed, he’d have to put in the extra effort. Robin’s desire to be taken seriously by his peers was just the motivation he needed, and when he started to see the fruits of his labor, it motivated him even more.

Check out Robin’s story here.

DR. JOROMI IS TRULY A POWERFUL MAN. Contacting Dr Joromi is the best thing that has ever happened to me. My husband left me for another woman for the reason which i know nothing about. I tried every means to get him back but to no avail, all my efforts proved abortive. I was even contemplating suicide. On a lucky day when i was browsing the internet, i came across some amazing testimonies about Dr. Joromi on how he has helped a lot of people with his powerful love spells. I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you.

My husband left me for a younger woman and I was devastated. It was as if she had him under an evil spell, Paul turned against me overnight without any warning. It happened last year, I was desperate so I used every single spell casting website that I could find with no results. A friend sent me the link to Dr. Ilekhojie site and I contacted him. He started working with me in June. As a result from all of his wonderful work, Paul is here right now beside me which is a dream come true. I’m so happy and privileged to have met Dr Ilekhojie. Thank you! If you have similar issues, kindly contact Dr Ilekhojie and be rest assured to get help WhatsApp on +2348147400259 or Email gethelp05@gmail.com

Great spllcaster that bring back my ex husband .

I am not sure I could have done it without you. I contacted a real spell caster that helped me change my husband’s heart to love and want me again, and he really did and now we are very happy together. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..

My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:

I am here to sing praises of Dr Ilekhojie who has granted my gear desire. Before the pandemic, me and my husband of 5 years has issues and he moved out of the house. It was hell being alone during those times because I was alone with my kids and they wanted their dad by all means. I cried all night and had to explanations when my kids asked for their father and months later, he served me divorce papers and that broke me. During one of my alone days at the park, I met Melissa who gave me the contact of Dr Ilekhojie. After talking to him, I had little peace and assurance when he promised me my husband will return in a few days. I did all he asked and provided all he needed. With exactly three days, my husband came late at night and practically begging for me to forget about the divorce and accept that he returns home. I was dumbfounded because I was not expecting results so soon.

Thank you Dr Ilekhojie even though you will not see this post. Incase you are in a situation like mine, kindly talk to Dr Ilekhojie and I assure you that there is always a solution from him. Email: (gethelp05@gmail.com) WhatsApp or Viber +2348147400259

After seeing a post on the internet saying how she was helped by Dr. Ilekhojie, I also decided to contact him for help because i had no choice all i wanted was for me to get my husband back and happiness. He was messing with a lot of women and he hurt me really bad. Despit all Henry was doing, i still loved him and did not want to loose him. To my greatest surprise my husband came home on his knees that i should find a place in my heart to forgive him.

Am Angelica Chavez from USA ,San Antonio. How I won $1,000,000 USD on Mega Millions lottery jackpot, I took an advice from some persons who talked about this great spell caster called Prof Ibrahim, the person placed a testimony on a blog and other comment sections explaining how Prof Ibrahim of profibrahim98@gmail.com helped him win the lottery by sending him the winning numbers. I was curious and I thought it was all a joke not until I contacted this spell caster myself to know how he work. Because I had spent a lot in the past buying tickets and it has been so frustrating. I contacted him and he told me the necessary things that is needed to be done and I did it and he told me to wait for 2days and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which I did, Can you believe my name was the first among the winners. He told me (my daughter all I need you to do for me, is to make sure that you share this testimony to others, so that they can also win the lottery. Because I do not have much time to spend on the internet) so that is why I am sharing my testimony with you so if you desire to win the lottery this is the way online tips that can help you profibrahim98@gmail.com or You can chat him on his Whatsapp number +27785149508 or visit his website at http://www.africanancientspells.com.

On several occasions Kenny threatens to break up with me if I dare question him about his affair with other girls, I was totally devastated and confused until an old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Dr Ilekhojie who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love Spells, At first I doubted If such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, When I contact him, he told me about how it is done and he ensured that i was fine with all the processes and assured me of my desire. Wiithin 28 Hours Kenny called me and started apologizing that he woke up reflecting on all he has done to me. I was very shocked because Kenny is not always the type that is sorry for anything but he became loving and caring ever since. If you need similar help, Here’s his contact..

This testimony is worth sharing to the world. I am here to tell the world of the good works of Dr BALBOSA. My name is Olivia Bolton am from the UK.. My man left me and my kids for another older woman. It was not so easy for me.. I love my husband so much and I did not lose hope and I kept praying and God finally answered my prayers...i searched online for a spell caster to help me unite me and my lover back forever and i saw so many testimonies of how DR BALBOSA has helped so many people online and i decided to give him a trial … I contacted him and explained to him. He told me not to worry that he will bring back my man within 24 hours. He consulted his powers and assured me not to worry . He did his work and cast the spell and to my greatest surprise, my husband came back the same day begging and crying just as Dr BALBOSA said. He begged me for forgiveness and he promised never to leave me for any reason. We are happy and we live together as one. Contact Dr BALBOSA now and be happy forever. dont lose hope and good luck..
