Football is by far the best sport to watch and play.
I have spent numerous weekends spent in front of the TV, laptop and on the terraces watching match after match in 24 hour football marathons.
When I was on holiday in Tunisia I watched as a trio of Italians walked around the beach pointing to the ball and a couple of shirts that formed goal posts. 10 minutes later they'd gathered about 20 or so English, French, Tunisian, Spanish, Australian, German and Danish players to play in a well spirited game of football.
Because everybody understands the INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE OF FOOTBALL
