Victims? In national team, there is no room for victims and drama queens and excuses. Either you are a hero or you are a villain. You wait for you chance and push for a better case so that they cannot ignore you, and once you get that chance you nail it...you get nailed ...you play by the rule (written and unwrietten) and kill it or get killed.... no room to play blaming game.
You may have to work a little bit harder then the other guy... and you may get less chance than the other guy before you are dropped... but if you cannot use the opportunity or walk out from the opportunity... then its only you who should be blamed... not ypour luck ... not because you are a victim.
Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is. –Vince Lombardi
