"I learned that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not." At the age of eight, Kak already knew what he wanted in life: to play soccer and only soccer. He started playing in front of his friends and family, but after a crippling injury, doctors told him he would never play again. Through faith and perseverance Kak recovered and has since become a FIFA World Player of the Year, and winner of the Ballon d'Or. This updated edition tells the story of the midfielder for Real Madrid who has become one of the most recognized faces on the soccer field.
