Keeper: By Mal Peet

Paul Faustino is interviewing a famous goalkeeper named El Gato. El Gato is talking about his childhood and how he became a keeper. Gato says that he started goalkeeping in the forest. An old goalkeeper came out of the forest and onto the turf and said, “There is your place, you belong there.” At first Gato didn’t know what it meant, but after he finished his lessons with the keeper he knew what he meant. Then Gato went onto become a famous goalkeeper who won a World Cup.
