Hi there my Hivean friends and followers!

I am happy to share another football post with you today and also contribute to the Sports Talk Social community again after a while. Some two weeks, we happened to visit a very special football match - the finale of the Amputee Football Euro 2021 that was held in Krakow, Poland.

As you might already know, I am a huge football fan and I must have been to hundreds of football games already but this was the very first time that I actually got to visit an amputee football match and it was amazing. I was really impressed by the skills of the players who, despite their handicap, delivered a stunning performance and a great football show.

The grand finale of the tournament was a prestigious battle between Turkey and Spain. In "regular" football, the Spaniards would probably beat the Turks but in this kind of football, it was Turkey who totally dominated the game as well as the whole tournament. Eventually, they hammered Spain 6:0 and thus managed to defend their 2017 title of the European champions. The final game was played at the Cracovia Krakow stadium and even though it was quite late in the evening and very cold that day, quite a lot of people came to watch the match. We somehow ended up sitting right above the super noisy crowd of the Turkish fans who created an amazing atmosphere on the stadium. Those few guys rooting for Spain had no chance, the support of the Turks was just frenetic and I really enjoyed their chants :)

Let me now show you some of the videos that I took at this interesting sport event.





I hope you enjoyed the videos. I will wrap up this post with the final standings of the tournament:

That was awesome you got to attend! It is amazing to watch the skills that would amaze most people, you sometimes forget they are amputees because their bodies compensate in ways that seem impossible.

I am constantly amazed at the human body and what we are capable of doing with it.

Exactly! I couldn´t believe how fast some of those players were moving and how amazing their ball control was. Really interesting and enlightening experience.

It really is! they have a wounded warriors program in our local area (We are near Walter Reed Hospital, the Military Hospital) and one of the premier places that many of our people come to recover after being sent home. It is amazing to see how well and how they compensate to make life normal for them.

Of course, normal, whatever that is.

It is an experience to work/volunteer with these people.

Ty jo, to jsem vůbec netušil, že se něco takovýho hraje. Škoda, že nemáš nějaký video ze zápasu. To by mě zajímalo, jak se hýbou :)

No hýbali se fakt neskutečně... Obrovská rychlost, skvělá práce s míčem, fakt jsem nechápal. Našel jsem jedno video z minulého šampionátu. Turci jsou v tomhle druhu fotbalu očividně absolutní světová špička :)

Co jsem pochopil, tak hráči v poli musí mít jen jednu nohu a brankáři jen jednu ruku.
