Had a weird dream several weeks back. I dreamt that Radamel Falcao was my secondary school classmate, and that he used the international break during the first week of September to come and visit his old friends here in Singapore.
Falcao was born on 10 February 1986, exactly one month after my birthday. So the possibility of us being schoolmates is quite plausible.
I haven’t played a proper football match for over 10 years though, and I used to be a goalie/defender back then, unlike Falcao who is now a prolific striker. So uhhh… congrats for scoring your first Man United goal, my (imaginary) classmate friend?
I woke up from the dream in sweat. Not because I dreamt about Falcao, but because it’s probably a sign that I had been watching way too much football.
In other weird trivia, Shinji Okazaki is also 28 years old, born on 16 April 1986. Maybe in some strange alternate universe, a Japanese striker, a Colombian forward, and a Singaporean defender were classmates and teammates on the same squad…
