  1. What is the most popular ball game in your country?

Football (soccer) is considered the king of sports.

It is no secret that football is played in almost every country on earth. My country is no exception. People in my country are crazy about football. You will find most of the youths playing football in the evening on the weekends in many places in VN.

  1. Why is football so much more popular?

Compared to other sports, there is no sport that can cause suspense and excitement for players and viewers like football.

In this regard, football clearly has the effect of relieving stress and bringing people together as a remedy to help them temporarily forget the worries of daily life.

  1. Which is your favourite ball game?

Actually, I’m not really into sports, especially football. But I used to play badminton with my cousins when I was a child; it was quite great. But now I don’t play any sports.

  1. Where can you play ball games in your area?

There are many places to play ball games, such as in gardens or in a park, on a playing field not far from my place, and sometimes at a stadium.

  1. Why do you think people like to play with a ball?

As I mentioned, I’m really not keen on sports, especially playing with a ball.

but … I guess because they think it’s really exciting because it’s fast-paced.

It relieves tension and stress and boosts physical and mental health.

It is also the great way to socialize with others and make new friends.

  1. Have you ever played any ball games that you’re not good at?

Oh, because I’m not really into sports, so I’m not good at any ball games. I only played badminton when I was a child.

I find playing sports quite difficult; I remember I usually lose badminton games when playing with my cousins.

  1. Who is your favorite sports star?

I’m not a big fan of football, and I hardly watch any football games, but my favorite sports star is Leo Messi.

He was named World Sport Star of the Year in 2022 after captaining Argentina to the World Cup in Qatar.

After the World Cup 2022 is finished, a lot of news is talking about Leo Messi. I feel curious about him because he is so famous. So I read some news about him and watched some videos about his life. His life story caught my attention just as much as his incredible skills.

What struck me the most is that he had to overcome countless obstacles, the biggest of which was the growth hormone deficiency that he suffered from. Despite his health problems, Messi developed into a modern legend. He has won numerous trophies over the course of his career. That’s why he is the role model for the young generation around the world.
