There are players who never saw the inside of a professional youth training centre and even played in the district league as adults - and still became professionals.
Arminia Bielefeld‘s top striker and promotion hero Fabian Klos is one such player - as is Jamie Vardy of Leicester City. Even France's world champion Olivier Giroud and the incomparable Didier Drogba only found their feet in the French first division in their mid-twenties.
What unites them? They stuck to their dreams and didn't let "well-meaning" advice to end their careers or serious setbacks in the form of injuries get them down.
Like Janine Gibson. The 19-year-old regional league player from FFC Wacker München has a dream. And she is pursuing it - also with the help of B42.
