The true-life story of an imagined Utopia – of willpower, sacrifice and joy, and of daring to dream. Aged 22, Sergio Torres quit his job in an Argentine brick factory, telling colleagues he was going to be a footballer in Europe. Yeah, right. Three years later, they turned on the TV and there was Sergio starring against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

About the author

Sergio Torres isn’t the most famous footballer in the world – he’s played for Banfield de Mar del Plata, Deportivo Madryn, Molesey, Basingstoke Town, Wycombe Wanderers, Peterborough United, Lincoln City and Crawley Town – but he keeps dreaming. Co-author Juan Manuel Lopez writes for Diario El Clarin and El Grafico. He dreams, too.
