BBC Inside Out's Simon Pryde meets a blind footballer destined for stardom.
Lee Brunton from North Shields dreams of playing football for the country he loves.
Lee has overcome many obstacles in his life but playing for England in the sport he adores is not his greatest challenge.
He was five when he almost died.
A tumour on the brain left him with tunnel vision. Today he can only see shadows - and even that is disappearing.
But Lee's failing sight has not prevented him from excelling at sport.
He has just been called up for the England academy team but that means moving 300 miles away from home.
So how will he face up to his next big challenge?
