MY FAVOURITE SPORT

Sports is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. - Oxford Dictionary

Aside being a means of entertainment, exercise and getting in shape or staying fit, sports is one of the most important tools that brings about unity to the world, which as made many forget their individual differences and enjoy the moment.

And in that spirit I've fell in love with my sports at one point or another in my life, probably because of the character of one of its players, friends opinion about it or because my country participated in it, but the one which won my heart and stood tall miles ahead of every other sports is football.

HOW I FELL IN LOVE WITH FOOTBALL

hl_footer.png

As a young boy, my uncle usually took me alone each time he's going to his friends place to watch football alongside his pair group then, and from the passion and pain they exhibit each team their team is playing, either winning or losing lead me to want to know more about the sports, and as my hunger for more knowledge about the sports grew, so does my love for it does as well.

Some other major reason why the love of football as continually lingers in my heart, is because of my love for some players and the football club I support, over the years, the likes of Diego Maradona, Denis Bergkamp, Delima Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi as renew my love for the game, also football team like Nigerian U17, Arsenal and Barcelona as increase my love for the game, even though Arsenal ought to be a reason for me to quit watching football due to their poor run of games and badluck, but I find myself going back to watch them, after some days of vowing never to do such again🤣, I wish our men will stick and love one woman the way the love one football team forever 😒.

MY OPINION ABOUT WATCHING AND PLAYING FOOTBALL

hl_footer.png
Like I said earlier, I grew up watching alot of football matches, both on the TV screen and on the street, so it's a game I personally derived a lot of pleasure from just watching, I hardly play it the way I watch due to the fact that I get scold each time I got catch playing as s child, I think that kind of grew up with me, cause I still hardly play it, and each time I did, I usually end of with different injuries like twisted ankles, bruises and the likes.

Presently I don't even go near a football field with the hope of playing due to an health issues, which will make me lose my breath, and unable to move my limbs each time I played.
IMG_20211019_164155_437.jpg
Due to the reality of life that draws became realistic to me via adulthood, I've now reduce the rate at which I watch football at anytime of the day, I mean who'll 💁go out at 10pm to watch football after a stressful day at work and you know you'll be resuming back to work the following morning.

But that doesn't mean I don't love football, because I'll watch the highlights of every miss matches on my phone or follow the livescores online.

You may just continue watching since you also find pleasure in doing so. Your health is more important.

Na you o, senior striker.

Chelsea is just like an upcoming artist making wave .

Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona, Madrid and the likes are father figure to Chelsea, who should be discussing and sitting in the same table with Nothigham forest and Aston villa. 🤣🤣

very detailed, everyone will understand your writing easily, very good.

I just want to emphasize that, football players from a team consisting of 11 players including the GOALKER, should not be separated, because the goalkeeper is also part of the PLAYER. ✌😊

Thanks for your comment Brother, I understand your point of view, but I have my reasons for separating them, because most people who don't know much about football like lady's will start ask questions, like why one is using his hands and others can't, and after answering that, then another question pop in, am speaking from experience.

hehe okay no problem my brother, but they must understand that we are discussing and posting this in a public place and the scope is very wide, we can't think of just one woman, it will make many people have the wrong perception about the number of players in a team.

apart from all that, you have full rights about your writing, I'm just giving an opinion as a connoisseur of your extraordinary writing, again it doesn't matter my brother, that's good.😁👌
