Hi there! I researched a bit about Football and decided to share these amazing facts on my blog.
All about Football
Football is a competitive team sport played in many countries all over the world. It is played with a round ball which the players try to kick, carry or propel into the other team’s net.
Nobody is really sure when football was invented, but many cultures seem to have had the idea Over 3,000 years ago, the Chinese played a game called "tsu-chu" by booting a leather ball into a net held up by bamboo canes. They played it to celebrate the emperor's birthday. Japan, Greece, Rome, and South America also played early variations of this game.
Football is a very simple game. There are 11 players: one goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders, and two forwards. Each goal is worth one point and is scored when the ball is kicked into the net. An important rule: No hands! Only the goalkeeper may use his or her hands. Other players may use any part of their body except the area from the tips of their fingers to their shoulder to move the ball.
And most importantly: Have fun!
Fun Football Facts!
The game’s original name was actually “basket-ball” because the first goals were overturned wicker baskets.

“Mom! I’m going for a walk! I’ll be back before dinner!” Yelled Cora before she stepped outside and shut the door with a bang. She walked along the grey stone sidewalk, observing everything in her town. She noticed the beige brick houses that stood identically in a row, overgrown with ivy and honeysuckle. She noticed the red, juicy, but probably poisonous sprigs of berries on the eternal green bushes. She also noticed a nearby playground that looked quite empty.
She entered the playground and looked around. It was a nice little playground, and Cora decided she would spend her free time here. Her eyes swivelled to the swings and saw a girl about her age sitting there, swinging and reading a book.
Cora sped to the swings and greeted her with a cheery ‘Hi!’ and the girl replied likewise. Introducing herself to the pale-faced girl, Cora jumped onto the other swing. She learnt that the girl was Natasha from Switzerland, an 11 Year old with straight brown tresses and pale blue eyes. She was a bookworm and always read books at this playground. Cora liked this simple, sweet girl and befriended her.
Months later, it was vacation time, and Cora and her family went to Disneyland. When they returned, Cora went to the little playground as usual, but couldn’t find Natasha. For many weeks, she had no news from her friend, when one day, a letter came for Cora. It was from Natasha, saying she had moved to a nearby apartment and was waiting for Cora to visit her. So one weekend, Cora visited Brimstone Apartments, a miserable-looking grey building.
When Cora knocked on the door, her mother appeared at the door with a smile that looked fake. She ushered Cora into Natasha’s room, a big cluttered-up place with a girl sitting on the bed, texting on her iPhone. She had curly blonde hair with pink streaks. She wore dark lipstick and lots of makeup. She wore loud, bright clothes and super pointy high heels. Cora thought it was Natasha’s sister but it was the girl itself! Quiet, shy Natasha had turned into someone totally unrecognizable! When Cora stammered ‘Hi!’ in a shaky voice to this stranger, Natasha turned around.
When she saw Cora, she said hello and went back to her iPhone, laughing at a funny joke. After some time, she put down her phone and greeted Cora properly. She suggested playing on her Xbox 360, and Cora nodded nervously. Cora thought the Xbox was horrible, and wished they could just flip through a good old book together or tell jokes like they used to do in the good old days.
Cora spent an uncomfortable half an hour at Natasha’s house, playing with all her new devices before excusing herself and slipping out the door. She raced home and flopped on her bed, panting. She grabbed a book from her bookshelf and started reading ‘The Blue Mangoes’ by Annette Kristenbell. Sometimes, there was nothing better than a good old book. By changing her bookworm ways, Natasha had just lost a good friend.
