Inhaltsangabe zu „Defending the Line: The David Luiz Story (ZonderKidz Biography)“ von Alex Carpenter

'Everything in life belongs to God. Our purpose has already been mapped out.' ---David Luiz One of the rising stars in international soccer, David Luiz has been impressing crowds since he was a boy. But it is his faith, not his fame, that drives him to greater success and keeps him “defending the goal.” David made his debut in professional soccer as a left fullback when he was just 19. He was then picked up by Portugal’s Benfica team and named player of the year for the 2009-2010 season. As a star defender and vice-captain for the Brazilian National team, David shines both on and off the field, inspiring athletes around the world with his incredible soccer skills and his unwavering faith. David currently plays for England’s Chelsea Football Club, one of the premier club teams in the world, and he is expected to play for Brazil in the 2014 World Cup.

    Defending the Line: The David Luiz Story (ZonderKidz Biography)

    Defending the Line is the newest addition to the Zonderkidz biography series and tells the story of David Luiz, a world-class football player who was voted player of the year in 2010. Having made his debut in professional football as a teen, he has since become a star player whose faith and success inspire athletes and fans around the world. Fulfilling his childhood dream, David Luiz played for Brazil’s national football team, A Seleção, in this year’s FIFA World Cup. His story will motivate young readers aged 8-12 and provide parents, youth leaders and football coaches with an inspirational new hero. At 112 pages, Defending the Line is a quick read. A glossary explains various football related terms but also a number of Portuguese expressions. Most of these are also explained within the text so that I didn’t actually need to use the glossary. While there are several mentions of his faith throughout, I would have liked a few specific examples of how David Luiz’ life and career are fuelled by his faith. Having said that, I still think that the book will appeal to and inspire young football fans.
