Soccer Champions Motivational Quotes

"Part of my preparation is I go and ask the kit man what colour we're wearing – if it's red top, white shorts, white socks or black socks. Then I lie in bed the night before the game and visualise myself scoring goals or doing well. You're trying to put yourself in that moment and trying to prepare yourself, to have a 'memory' before the game. I dont know if you'd call it visualising or dreaming, but I've always done it, my whole life. When I was younger, I used to visualise myself scoring wonder goals, stuff like that.  From 30 yards out, dribbling through teams. You used to visualise yourself doing all that, and when you're playing professionally, you realise it's important for your preparation."
Wayne Rooney
