This is a lovely story of hope, ambition and hard work. It could be the story behind the many African footballers who delight crowds each weekend. Bandian is an 8 year old football fan in an African village. He realises he will have to work 750 days to pay for a proper leather football and despairs. When a doctor brings him one, the village kids paint it gold. Will Bandian make it to Europe?
