One day I was going to play football after school. when school was over I went to a football field near my school. My dad took me. When we got there my friends were waiting for me.
When everyone was there, we began to play. The first 5 minutes, didn't go that well for me, but the minutes after I got the ball. I ran as fast as I could with the ball, and when I got close to the goal I kicked the ball.
I closed my eyes. Then I opened them, I thought I missed, but...
I scored! I was so happy. I jumped up in the air and my team gave me a group hug.
At the end of the game, my team won and we got a medal each.
and that was how I learned to score a goal at football!
When i was small like 4,5 or 6 i was pretty bad at football when I played i would sit on the floor in the middle of a match and i would look at the sky look at the birds and i would fight if they din't count my goal but now i got more practice and got calmer so then i got better than my friend and he is 11 right now and Im better than him even he says thats how i became better at football!!!!!!!
