What do you like most about football?

What do you like most about football?

We asked football fans in Brazil a series of questions about Brazilian football and culture and English. In this video, the fans tell us what they like most about football. What do you think they will talk about?

Watch the video and complete the activities in the learn section at the bottom of the page.

Tapescript

First watch the video, then, if the video is too difficult, try reading the tapescript to help your understanding.

Peter: The best thing about football.... I think it's the errr sense of cooperation you have in a team, when you're walking together towards a goal.

Joao Pedro: You don't need to be the best player to be part of the team.

Aloisio: To be around friends and playing something that you like. And to see a lot of people playing and supporting something I guess. Football brings people together.

Emanuela: I think it's really how social it can be. You know, how people get together.

Patricia: I think there's a social element that's very nice. You know. it's really a way to connect with people and make friends.

Karina: I think maybe watching the games. Just gathering round and watching the games.

Victor: The passion. You know, you cannot only watch your team playing. You become part of the game.

Joao: It's when you see your team winning a game.

Artur: I don't know, just the excitement you get when your team scores a goal. Or you're at the stadium and everyone is screaming at the players throughout the game.

What did you understand?

 
Activity 1: In this activity, learn some vocabulary that was used by the fans. Match the vocabulary to the definitions. When you finish the activity, watch the video again and listen to the fans using the vocabulary. Try to use these words in your own sentences
Match the words to the definitions

Put the words together as quick as you can.

Many football leagues have good players, excellent teams, infrastructure but it simply doesn't have any sense if they don't have fans singing and cheering. English clubs have all mentioned and even more. They have tradition!
