Faiq Jefri Bolkiah carved a name for himself being the first (and so far, only) Bruneian to be playing in Europe.
He started off playing for A.F.C Newbury at 11 years old before he was scouted by Southampton FC. At 16 years old, Faiq broke into professional football by signing with Chelsea FC after impressing on trial. These days, he is playing for the Leicester City FC reserve team.
Being a professional footballer is no easy feat especially in Europe. For starters, you need to have excellent fitness. Then you need to prove yourself against some of best football players in the world. And lastly, you need the type of discipline and commitment that will get you training from as early as sunrise nearly every day.
