Football (soccer), is an amazing sport. It not only teaches the youth of today about team work, well being, keeping fit, and the skills of the game, but it also fosters life skills. Skills such as taking responsibility, commitment, loyalty, discipline, leadership, problem solving, social skills, communication, and how to deal with failure; as well as winning.
This list could go on and on, but this great game for sure. It helps develop young men and women and get them ready for life. To quote a former English International Jimmy Greaves, 'It's a funny old game!'
