You think you got one opponent today?
Bcoz today you’re goin up against more than a football team
Today your opponent is fear
Today your opponent is hesitation
Today your opponent is every person who’s ever doubted you
The people who told you you weren’t good enuf
Said you will never make the team, never be a starter, never be a champion
Never mind all that
Today’s your chance to rise above
Show the world what you can do
Make sure they remember your name
And never forget your heart
Today your opponent is yourself
Because only you decide if you stand or fall
Only you can control what happens between the whistles
So what are you gonna do?
You gonna leave the shred of doubt in anyone’s head?
Or are you gonna leave nothing?
