The Golden Dream
Carlos Calderon is a humble normal eighteen year old boy from Pasadena California. While most teenagers spend the summer of their eighteenth year getting ready for college, Carlos is spending it competing against the world in his favorite sport, soccer. Carlos is on the United States under 20 men ́s national team, and he and his teammates are competing in the FIFA Under 20 World Cup. For Carlos and his teammates this is only the first step to achieving their dream of representing the U.S. in the World Cup. Their dream is shared by their opponents of this tournament but unlike Carlos and his teammates, most of those players will one day carry the hopes and dreams of their entire country when they play in the World Cup. Also unlike their opponents, the American team is criticized for being inexperienced and accused of having non-citizens as players. Carlos and his teammates must now overcome their critics, and play their best to show the World what American soccer has in store for the future, and hope that those back home will one day have The Golden Dream that they and the rest of the World all share.
