Edi's dream is to be a high competition player. Real Madrid will choose until the end of the year some players to go to Spain and it would be a blessing of the gods for the career of the youngest.

The shadow of a tree is the improvised bath room of players. Mister Dinax is sitting on a half-torn plastic bench. At the side is an empty drum and a block of concrete that serve as tables. The sun opens a curtain in the sky to peer into that team of football babies of Fubu, profiled for the photo: Nelson, 12 years; Baloteli, 14; Paul, 12; Dabarra, 14, Jota Dod, 13; Kenera, 12; Gogoró, 12, Giovani, 12, Januário, 12, Edi, 13 and Leandro, 14.

At 8:30 am the match against the Candengues de Patriota would have started, an opponent coming out from the Benfica neighborhood, began on the schedule of games organized by the Spontaneous National Movement and is called Gira Bairro. The games take place on Saturdays, from 8:30 a. m. onwards, "if we are going to have a Petrangol team, we should go to Petrangol, we have transportation", clarifies Dinax.

Edi and his team enter the field and begin to warm up their muscles, with the white ball skipping and sliding on the wheel of players already equipped with the Contemplante green lettuce sweater.
