Hello for everybody. I would like to tell about kind of sport in my country. I live in Ukraine. As you know my motherland is receiving guests from around the world now, because we are masters with Poland of Euro 2012. It's amazing. A lot of foreigners and wonderful football playing. It's incredible atmosphere in the station. This event very important for our country and we believe the guests will enjoy also.

Hello LearnEnglish Team

Hi, everyone..I think football is just a sport and like all sports every people can practice these...even can do it, if it is women or man.. 

hi everybody i m from thailand

hi Yuen..

In my opinion, women can't fast and skillful in football like man but this is sport and everyone can play. Especially, fair play and playing with high spirit is very good!

Some sentences I was complicated perceived by ears

Women who are playing football in t-shirts and shorts are not attractive like the ones who play tennis or volleyball. Also they are not fast and strong enough to attract men. As a man, I'm feeling very bored while watching them.
