Ball is Life (Video): Glen on Weah’s inspiration and the big game Frenchman who could decide Russia 2018

Singing Les Bleus! Former T&T international Cornell Glen reveals how George Weah inspired him to become a football star, the elegant Frenchman that made him forget the “Samba Boys” and the big game player he thinks will take Russia 2018 by storm, in the first of Wired868’s five-part World Cup series, “Ball is Life!”

  1. D first President who won a Ballon d’Or

  2. Wired868 In article with Cornell Glen

  3. Like u hadda put a semicolon instead of a comma there for people to understand

  4. Glenavon Bissessar we all make mistakes. Me not pointing it out would be doing you a disservice.

  5. LasanaLiburd no offence taken….Ian Fitzwilliam i can take constructive criticism, hope you never make the same error….

  6. Glenavon not singling you out here at all. More like about a dozen other people who made silly comments.

  7. Ian Fitzwilliam I just don’t know what to say. Comprehension seems to be a lost art in this country!
    I hope some English language teachers are watching! 😂😂🙈🙈

  8. Lasana Liburd when people read headlines then comment on content. 😂😂😂

  9. And obviously Weah never played in a World Cup.

  10. Cornell said George Weah inspired him. He never said that Weah was French. He knows that he is not.

  11. Helped knock us ( Signal Hill) out of Intercol. Very fast striker

  12. Cornell Glen one Trinidad and Tobago greatest players.

  13. Keep up the good work we need more of you in Trinidad

  14. Big player man respect …..

  15. But well done with that interview ah appreciate it cos he did a lot for our football

  16. Lisana Liburd Yuh should ah put up dat solo goal he scored for New York New Jersey metrostars ah can’t remember the team he scored against but he started from inside his half just inside the centre circle and beat at least 4 defender’s then the keeper and scored he got world play of the day with dat CNN world play of the day to boot

  17. One of the greatest players to don the red, white & black

  18. You know I jus watched, Weah’s top 10 AC goals, today.

  19. Forget some people unless you are part of T&T landscape your comments would be off track.

  20. When we become out of touch with what’s going on in the local arena we may downplay what a player has achieved. We have no players in the MLS today (correct if I’m wrong) we have none in the EPL or 2nd 3rd or even 4th division. Cornell Glen was able to come from humble beginnings make a name for himself locally and internationally (played in a World Cup and almost scored). Great player, excellent service to both club and country.
