Playing Football

My favourite pastime is playing football. Five years ago, my father asked me to watch a football match. After that match, I became interested in the game. I pestered my mother day and night to buy me a football. My mother finally agreed after one long week of incessant nagging.

The moment I received the ball, I dashed down the stairs to the neighbourhood field which belongs to Gan Eng Seng Secondary School. I started kicking the ball around. Just like bees are attracted to honey, a lot of young boys were attracted to my football. Since then, I have been playing football with this group of budding footballers.

With constant practice, I have improved in my football skills. Now I am capable of dribbling, heading, striking and dummying. Only yesterday, I scored a hat-trick while playing a match with my friends. I was as proud as a peacock.

My father and I are avid supporters of Manchester United Football Club which recently won three gold trophies. I never miss any of their matches. We are proud owners of many football magazines and posters depicting great players like David Beckam, Mickael Silvestre and Andy Cole to name only three. My favourite outfit is a threadbare MUFC outfit.

Football is a very special game as it is the only game invented by man where you can use only your legs except for the goalie. Football builds up one's muscles, stamina and strength.
