First footballing hero?

Oliver Kahn. My Grandfather told me about him. He is a big fan of the Bundesliga. Every weekend we would watch him play. I kept following him until he retired.

First experience against a larger reputation side?

It was a friendly against PSV, we won 2-1. It was a great experience playing against a top side and it was a great success when we managed to win the game.
