Well, football is the only sport that I usually watch with my brother. I’m terrible at playing football but I love watching a football match. Both home and away games cause high levels of emotion in me. Today, however, I would like to talk about a match where I did not care about the score.

There was an occasion a few years ago when I went to watch a football match in a town about half an hour from where I live by bike. It was a charity match to collect funds for the local school – and it was very well attended. I think there must have been over 5,000 people there, which isn’t bad because there weren’t any star players. The atmosphere was so exciting that it encouraged the players a lot as soon as they came into the football pitch with the referee. My brother and I were 100 percent focused on the match and provoked the players in two teams for their fair play.

I am really deep into this football match for a number of reasons. Firstly, the players in two teams are not the professors, but they really ensured fair play and no red and yellow cards were released. Secondly, because of the charity aim of the match, the ticket fair then was donated for this local school and poor children, so I felt happy to contribute something to help other people.

In fact, it is the most unforgettable match that I have ever lively watched.
