Hi! My name is Jim. The most popular sport in Greece is football. There are 2 teams. Every team has 11 players. The aim of the game is to kick the ball and try to score a goal in the opponent’s net. If one player hits another player or touches the ball by using his hands it’s a foul. The duration of a football match is 90 minutes. The passion that every fan has towards the sport is something that keeps their enthusiasm alive. Football is full of action and thrilling moments. I love football because it made me feel happy every day!
