The game I like most

There are various kinds of games and sports-indoor and outdoor-in the world. I like almost all of them. But my favourite game of course is football. This is because in no other game do I find more excitement, recreation, mental and physical alertness, and skill. Though originated in England, it is the most popular game all over the world now.

Football is played in an open field-120 yard long and 80 yard wide. It is played between two teams with 11 players on each side. It is played according to some fixed rules formed by FIFA. The game is conducted by a referee and two linesmen. The duration of the game is 90 minutes with an interval of 15 minutes.

Football is healthy game that strengthens our legs and other parts of the body. It makes the player clever, promt, careful, disciplined and co-operative. Through this game, different countries come closer to one another. Thus this play promotes national integrity and international understanding. However, it has its dark side also. In this body-contact game there is always a risk of getting an injury. The spectators sometimes get involved in violence which is not at all expected.
