What motivates the greats to go out there and smash it every day? What fires their passion to be the best even when the odds are stacked against them? In other words, what makes them feel unstoppable?
In a series of short films released each week, we’ll be exploring the powerful stories of five incredible talents at the top of their game. They are The Unstoppable Squad.
For the fifth episode in the series we meet current Burnley and Wales player Sam Vokes!
Vokes’ career has had an unstoppable rise in recent years. From being an integral part of Wales’ 2016 Euros campaign to reach the Semi Final in their first major tournament for 58 years, to playing a key role in Burnley’s best ever season in English football and qualifying for Europe.
In a candid interview, 90min finds out about the challenges Sam faced just months before that historic Wales performance, how he overcame these challenges, and the support squad around him that helped make these unstoppable moments in his career.
