One Chance in a Million

Becoming a professional footballer. It’s the dream of millions of children worldwide but only a few will come close. For future M’Bappés or Pogbas, the crucial age is between 13 and 16 years. But out of those selected by a club’s youth division, barely 10% of those will become professionals. We follow the young recruits selected by the prestigious Institut National de Football. Which of these boys will be the stars of tomorrow?
