Yes, I am football fan. In my country, there are many soccer teams. My favorite team is Flamengo, which is the most popular of Brazil, with more than 30 millions fans. Its color is red and black. Its city is Rio de Janeiro. The major footballer of Flamengo's history is Zico. Its slogan is "we are a nation". Its biggest opponents in Rio de Janeiro are Vasco, Fluminense and Botafogo.

I am a football fan. In my town, there are two big teams: Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade. I cheer for Red Star Belgrade unlike most of my friends. Red Star Belgrade is the greatest team from Serbia and the whole Balkans. In season 2018./2019. in the group stage of Champions League, Red Star Belgrade beat Liverpool 2-0 in Belgrade (unfortunately lost in Liverpool 4-1). Even after that, we still finished the group stage as 4th (last). This season (2019./2020.) we were horrible and finished up last in the group stage, Olympiakos was better after a suspicious penalty in 90th (last) minute.

But, Red Star Belgrade is important for one more thing, we won a Champions Cup, (elite football competition before Champions League was invented.) and Clubs World Cup in football, all in season 1990./1991.

Hope it changes back to good old times.

No, i'm not a football fan. But sometime i also watch Vietnamese team

Actually I like football matches a lot, especially when my favorite team play with other it is amazing load voices flags and whistles along the match

In Serbia, Red Star Belgrade especially, we have very loud fans with flags and torches. They always make amazing choreography before the match starts. I like cheering, it's even better at Champions League or Europa League.

Of couse, I am fan of football. My favourite team is Vietnam, the top football team in Asean.

Would you please give us the names of the players on the team? as goalkeeper..etc.

No, I'm not a football fan. I don't really like the football, for that I don't have any favorite team.

No, but I like football and watch it on TV. My favourite team is Esteghlal in Iran and Real Madrid in Spain.
