Bilal’s great idol is Cristiano Ronaldo, and his dream is to play for Real Madrid or the Turkish football club Beşiktaş. When he arrived in Turkey from Syria, he was only 9 years old.
His family uses the ESSN allowance mainly for rent. Bilal lives in Istanbul and trains on the small football fields in his neighbourhood. Online, he exchanges clips with Hamit from Turkey. Of course, it was only about one thing: football.
