Sample Answer

King of sports – Football is an essential part of my life. As my father said, I was interested in playing with balls before knowing how to speak. I always sat beside my father when he was watching football matches and that little boy always looked attentively at the TV screen although he didn’t know what was exactly happening.

It’s really hard to tell properly when I started my passion for football but as soon as I could run, I acquired a taste for this kind of sport with my little buddies.

Now rarely do I miss any tournaments of my favorite international clubs. I also have season tickets each year to follow all matches of my local football clubs. I usually take the fields with my dad or my friends at the weekends. I think that my dad was the one who inspired me to love football. He often took me to the national stadium to enjoy a match of the national football team if I had good results in my class.

Besides, I’m not only an avid football spectator but also a passionate player. Whenever I have free time, I spend it playing with a ball to enhance my skills. I participate in a youth team and we get together some afternoons per week to train our teamwork abilities. We have a friendly match with other teams every weekend.

I can’t imagine how my life would be if football didn’t exist. This kind of sport helps me keep in shape because I practice it every day. I put myself to the limits to be a better footballer, which is the reason why I have a very lean body. With football, I can leave my daily stress behind.

The emotions when I get wild with the crowds of spectators are so special. I’ll never forget the times when my favorite clubs won trophies. On the other hand, I also remember the disappointment when my team was defeated.

Well, my teammates and I got the second rank five consecutive times in my local tournament. Such a deep regret for missing the champion when you are very close to it, but we will try our best to hit this target this year.
