Every four years, countries from around the globe compete in the world’s largest sporting event – the World Cup. There are 32 teams, each team is comprised of eleven players.
When those eleven players step out on the field to represent their country, they do so knowing that if they each give their all, they can emerge from the game victorious, but only if they all fulfil their role and responsibilities as part of the team.
There are many instances of teams who may not necessarily be favorites, but work hard, and gain victory over much more individually talented opponents.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
