Footballers: from children to cracks!
As a child, we have all dreamed of becoming someone who seemed important, or famous, from a firefighter to a doctor or a great scientist ... We collect here the photos of our selection of children who dreamed of being a "cracks" of football , and they got it!
The veteran: "O Rei Pelé". Winner of countless trophies as a player, and now a myth for many players who are reflected in his career.
The same smile, the same little eyes ... of one of the most media stars of Real Madrid.
Angel of Mary
The truth is that little has changed the young striker between the two photos, but its quality is increasing. He is the starter in his team while the teams dispute it.
Piqué's gaze and his sly smile foreshadowed a young man capable of deceiving any of his attackers in defense.
The little German looked like a happy and happy boy, who achieved his goal of success in the world of football with the same energy as a young man.
The Mexican defender, who in the photo of a child was much smaller than the ball, already intended to stop any attack.
Robin Van Persie
Young Robin started in football at age 4. For the rest, he continues to succeed with the Dutch National Team.
Guillermo 'Memo' Ochoa
The young Mexican already looked attentive. If the child in the photo is throwing a ball, it will surely stop. Of the older, better not to doubt it!
The young German did not drop the ball at any time. It was, without a doubt, an omen of the future that awaited him.
Naughty boy ... skillful and very active player.
We do not know if with his teddy he already sensed who was going to be the oldest in the world of football: an example for many athletes who came after him.
Little Zlatan hid in his appearance as a serious and formal child a winning character that has taken him to the top of the world of football.
Making the first Communion, we already saw a Cristiano Ronaldo facing the goal, as supervising.
Young David had a straight face ... characteristic that certainly helped him succeed in football.
The Catalan Xavi Hernández, always of Barca, already seemed to say: "Here I am to put order."
The young "Pipita" already had an attentive and alert look.
Brazilian, friendly, happy, and also, an ace with the ball. An undisputed crack!
The Uruguayan striker did not know how to wear anything more than soccer kits!
The young Manchego, hero of the Spanish National Team in South Africa, and a very important player of FC Barcelona, was equally serious and had the same good face when he was young.
Sergio 'Kun' Agüero
The young Argentine forward of Manchester City looked somewhat naughty as a child ...
He is still so young that little difference is seen. But his gaze was already looking for the goal ...
The defender "by nature" of FC Barcelona was a blond boy who was already careful to feed himself well to be strong and face any striker.
The young Colombian no longer sat in a chair, but on a ball. His future was intuited ...
He already looked serene ... One of the best goalkeepers of the Spanish National Team.
The best player in the world, born in Argentina! Who would have told that nice baby who, no doubt, kicked a ball in the first step he took.
We wanted to collect, as a curiosity, the physical evolution of many of the current "cracks" of football. The truth is that their faces of children already foreshadowed in many cases the character that later distinguished them. As for success, many hours of work and a good dose of talent put the rest.
