Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Without a shadow of a doubt, Zidane remains the best French player of all time. He's the only footballer [US: soccer player] who managed to make me cry during the Euro 2004 France-England game. I would love to be able to meet him one day to thank him for giving me so much joy all those years. - Yes, I agree, Zizou also belongs to my top 3, but I'd say that Kylian Mbappé is my favourite player these days. What amazes me the most about this football [US:soccer] genius is the almost incomprehensible ease with which he scores over and over again, despite the fact that his technique could still be improved. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us as he grows older. - Yes, this young man is not done surprising us, mark my words!

I'll be right with you...
