Raj Jutla wants to be just like Fernando Torres but on Saturday, the Gateway School striker went one better than his Spanish idol by bagging his side the winning goal at Wembley in the League 1 Community Cup Final.
Organised by The Football League Trust, the six-a-side tournament brought together over 1,400 school children in Year 6 and below this season to compete in a series of regional finals in order to represent their local League 1 side and earn the chance to do battle beneath the famous arch.
Having missed out on a trip to the national stadium after losing in the late stages of the English Schools FA Cup, Gateway - representing Wycombe Wanderers - secured a late victory as Jutla finished a perfectly weighted pass from Oscar Glenister.
"It doesn't get any better than scoring at Wembley, I feel brilliant," he said. "A lot of professional footballers don't have the chance to score or even play at Wembley so I am really happy. I feel like a bit of a hero.
"It was a very close game but I glad that we managed to win. I want to be a professional player just like Fernando Torres when I am older."
However, it could have been very different for South Failsorth Primary - at Wembley on behalf of Oldham Athletic - as their skipper Max Davidson had a first-half effort palmed away by Gateway stopper Brandon Allen after a mesmerizing run through the midfield.
Davidson was then again denied after the break following another snaking run that baffled his opponents.
But it was Gateway that took the advantage and the trophy as Glenister cut back to feed in Jutla who happily struck the winner past Matthew Slattery in the South Failsworth net.
"It feels brilliant, you can't really beat winning at Wembley," added the Gateway teacher, Rob Grosse. "The lads have been excited all week and it doesn't get any better than this.
"It has been fantastic in the build up and that's when the nerves started to kick in - I think the result is the pinnacle of my career.
"We have had a very successful season but when we missed out in the English Schools FA Cup we thought our chance had gone to get to Wembley but thankfully another one came along."
The victory ends a nine-month odyssey to the final for the southern school which saw them defeat Colchester United, Brentford and hosts Leyton Orient in the Southern finals.
For South Failsworth, a journey that saw victories against sides including Leeds United and Huddersfield Town in the League 1 North Finals ended in heartbreak.
But despite the disappointment, their teacher Emma-Jane Davies insists that her players are determined to remember the day positively.
"It was upsetting but on the day the other team got the goal," she said. "The lads were gutted at the time but they are OK with it now. Their coach is very good at picking them back up and he has had a chat with them and they are feeling better.
"It has been a great experience for them to play here at Wembley - our hearts were in our mouths and when they scored it was gutting but they have lifted themselves."
