15 years ago, a 13-year-old Finnish girl fell in love. She fell in love with an athlete, but more importantly, she fell in love with a sport. That athlete was Francesco Totti. That sport was – of course – football.
Thank you Francesco for showing me the light. You will forever remain in my heart as my first great footballing love, and I wish you all the happiness and success in whatever path you choose to take.
