The sky is never the limit. Earlier atmosphere by the direction of the Milky way, world is at the feet. On Madeira, the Portuguese island where Cristiano Ronaldo was growing up, dreams every year, hundreds of boys to the same course as their local hero, but, to date, have the trainers, there is no second instance is found with his competitiegeest, his determination, his allergy to criticism and a lot of tears. Unique character.

The unwanted little boy from a broken family - mother Dolores was considering an abortion – had an uncontrollable urge to be himself and show off his body to the executioners. Boy on a mission: to be the best footballer in the world. At the age of twelve he waved an island without a future, the great dream after 1,000 kilometres away in Lisbon. The whole family stayed behind in Madeira: “I saw the tears of my sister by the zonnebrilglazen back,” he said once.

It was his flight for the poverty, the friends, the alcohol abuse of his father and other temptations– his brother became addicted to drugs. A solitary journey in which he himself, independently of the tears and the homesickness, each and every day tried to prove in the dormitory and the training centre of Sporting. “What do you want to do in life: cry it out with your mom or play football?”, they asked him during his first months regularly. Invariably the answer was the same: “to play Football.”
