I will follow a man who always tell me "Never set your eyes closed, as there are a lot of interesting things that could pass you by In just a seconds."
This is the reason i will be picking a moment out of this World Cup, although it happened to an African player in the past, and i will suggest in the end of this write-up, you name the African player, his club and conutry.
It happens like this...
"Croatia came to this World Cup with only two natural strikers. Mario Mandzukic, the guy who scored the winner in d match against England.
The other was Nikola Kalinic He was on the bench for Croatia's first game against Nigeria. With five munites to end that game, the coach instructed him to dress up and replace another player.
Kalinic angrily refused to play, in protest of being left on the bench. He saw himself a top player, and wouldn't come on for just five munites.
And, the coach turned to other player Pjaca for the substitution. After the match, Kalinic refused to apologize, despite appeals from other coaching staff. The coach was actually forced by his action, and he was sacked from the team, he was sent home from Russia.
Kalinic flew for holidays, and even posted pictures of himself enjoying elsewhere. After all, he seem to imagine, Croatia won't go anywhere in the tournament. But without him, the team managed to win their matches. Croatia has achieved their greatest football achievement in history, reaching the World Cup final.
The remaining 22 players are national heroes. Their names forever inscribed in the hearts of generations. Kalinic should have been part but minus him.
Jusr because of a minute of anger, pride and bloated ego, he lost a lifetime dream. He may have regretted now. He may have realized his tomfoolery. But it is too late.
All stories about life are quite familiar to us, but do we really learn lessons from them? As they profoundly apply to all spheres of life?
Learn to CUT your PRIDE. Learn to control your anger, DEFLATE your EGO and ultimately, learn to say SORRY. Years of SWEAT & DEDICATION can all be shattered by moments of ANGER and PRIDE. DON'T BE A KALINIC"😎😎ANONYMOUS
