The story of Thomas abroad in Europe: Father becomes a seller and let his son chase the football dream!! Family poverty In 1993, Thomas was born into a poor Ghanaian family, the eldest of eight siblings. His mother is a small vendor, and his father is the football coach of a local team. Thomas has been dealing with football since he was a child and is the main player of his father's team. Together with his brother Francis, they both think football is a way of life away from the slums. As Thomas continues to fulfill his talents, he has a dream of traveling to Europe. His parents knew that their son was talented, so they tried to raise funds for his trip in order to have a chance to go abroad. However, the family failed to raise funds and they had to use other methods to raise funds. Father's contribution Thomas did not know how his visa was paid. The father sold some of his precious property to finance his son's expenses. Thomas later recalled: "Father made a great effort. He sold some things to get me documents and buy sneakers for me. He helped me buy shoes since I was a kid, and he often Helping the team near me, I remember my father also brought food." Incredibly, Thomas didn't even have the opportunity to say goodbye to his family before leaving for Spain. Walk alone In 2012, Thomas decided to leave Ghana and seized the opportunity to try out in Atletico. "I got in a car and they (brokers) took me to the capital. They gave me a passport and let me travel. My dad was not at home and the family didn’t know anything, and they didn’t know that I was in Atletico that day. Try out, because if you tell them, it may cause a lot of trouble." "I went to Spain, and it took six or seven months before anyone realized that I was not in Ghana," and he didn't know what his father did for him (bringing himself to Europe) until a long time later. "My father has always supported me. Any decision, because they can't help me. My father has been silently supporting me behind my back. Although it has cost him a lot of money, he has no complaints." "The next month, they sent me money to buy sneakers. My mother was very worried about my safety in a foreign country. Sometimes I listen to her, but other people sometimes disagree with my mother's views. I always Do what I think is the best thing, and for this I decided to take a trip that just walked away."
托马斯在欧洲国外的故事：父亲成为卖方，让儿子追逐足球梦想！ 家庭贫困 1993年，托马斯（Thomas）出生在加纳一家贫穷的家庭中，是八个兄弟姐妹中的长子。他的母亲是一个小摊贩，父亲是一个地方队的足球教练。托马斯从小就开始从事足球运动，并且是父亲团队的主要球员。他们和他的兄弟弗朗西斯一起，都认为足球是远离贫民窟的一种生活方式。 随着Thomas继续发挥自己的才能，他有前往欧洲旅行的梦想。他的父母知道他们的儿子很有才华，因此他们尝试为他的这次旅行筹集资金，以便有机会出国。但是，家庭未能筹集资金，他们不得不使用其他方法筹集资金。 父亲的贡献 托马斯不知道如何支付签证。父亲卖掉了他的一些宝贵财产来支付儿子的开支。托马斯后来回忆道：“世界杯怎么买球父亲付出了很大的努力。他卖了一些东西给我买文件，帮我买了运动鞋。从我小时候起就帮我买鞋，他经常帮助我附近的团队，我记得我父亲也带了食物。” 令人难以置信的是，托马斯在去西班牙之前甚至没有机会与家人道别。 独自漫步 2012年，托马斯决定离开加纳，抓住机会在马竞尝试比赛。 “我上了车，他们（经纪人）把我带到了首都。他们给了我护照，让我旅行。我父亲不在家，家人一无所知，他们也不知道我那天在马竞比赛。请尝试一下，因为如果您告诉他们，这可能会造成很多麻烦。” “我去了西班牙，花了六到七个月的时间，才有人意识到我不在加纳。”直到很长一段时间以后，他才知道父亲为他做了什么（将他带到欧洲）。 “父亲一直支持我。任何决定，因为他们无法帮助我。父亲一直在背后默默支持我。尽管这花了他很多钱，但他没有怨言。” “下个月，他们寄了我钱去买运动鞋。我母亲非常担心我在国外的安全。有时候我听她的话，但其他人有时却不同意我母亲的观点。我总是做我认为是最好的事情，为此，我决定去一次刚刚走开的旅行。”
