It's simple and I describe it as an international language.Playing football doesn't need so much equipment. Even If you haven't a ball , it's possible to make it with plastics:-) Rules aren't so complicated.However I can't say that it's better than other sports. In my opinion swimming and tennis is more spectacular and stylish:-)

Because it is so passionate. Well, we usualy play football when we are children. You don't need expensive equipment like it's a case with some other sports like hockey or tennis. And it is the most played sport in the world.

No one in my family plays football. Because of this, I know nothing about football. It's great that I found this website because I've learnt many useful words related to football. There's a universal word the fans share when a player scores, everyone will shout, "Goal!" Even tough one does not play football, he/she knows its meaning. I don't think we can say that football is better than other sports and activities; each sport has its own attraction and great features, for examples, basketball and badminton.

Wilson is very good player Sara Khan. I know that some of my local teams wanted to buy him but obviously he was too good so he chose PL to play in..
