I love soccer.
If I have to explain why I love this game, I'd like to remind those days when I used to play soccer quite often during my childhood. It was the world-cup season of 2002 AD. The game was hosted by two Asian nations, Japan and Korea.
There was a huge excitement of the game all over my place. Fortunately, it was holiday time. We used to watch the game in the big screen and try to copy their styles of playing. We used to tag name of the famous players. I still vividly remember how exciting those moments used to be. We even formed a club. A senior football player taught us the basic skills. We improved a lot in a short period of time and played & won few matches too.
Brazil was the winner of that world cup and Brazillian Ronaldo, Oliver Kahn of Germany were very popular at that time. I even cut my hair like Ronaldo. lol.
This is about how I started watching and being passionate soccer fan.
Now, lets come to the point why the heck I love soccer then.
I like it coz I know it well since childhood.
I like it coz I feel this is a sport full of passion, with lots of twists and turns throughout the game.
I like it as it is a most popular sport in the world. & it used to feel good when discussing with friends about the game.I like it as I feel it is a beautiful game where two teams fights with their own strategy and try to execute their plans to succeed just like we fight hard in life to succeed.
It gives me inspiration like never giving up attitude, team spirit, getting excellence through hard word and dedication.
I like it because I try to watch not only game but the skills like dribbling, long & short pass, free kick, corner kick, penalty, defense, zonal marking, positioning strategy, ball possession tactics, stamina, header, speed, agility, strength, flexibility, touch on the ball.
When you start watching soccer with curiosity with close attention to the technical aspects, I am sure you can't stay without liking it.
