Soccer in Africa

By Muktar Ismael

When I was in Africa in Djibouti, I was playing soccer. I played every day with my friends at home. I was good at soccer because I can kick the ball in and out around other players and make a goal. Sometimes when I stand next to the goalie and my friends pass me the ball, I make a goal. I didn’t play goalie or defense. I played the middle and my job was to make a goal.

SoccerOctI only had a little bit of injuries—Not real big. But I had friends who got really hurt, like their knees. The soccer rules are the same in Djibouti, Arizona and Minnesota.

I really love soccer! I am very happy when I play soccer at school but this playground is too small. When I was in Arizona, the playground was big! But I still like to play!
