I played soccer as a kid and thought it was good fun. It taught me a few things. Some eye-leg co-ordination. How to hit a ball with my head. And I had a coach who my Mum called Ron Barassi. He must have been good for me.
However, I was Australian, so I switched to Australian Football and was relatively successful at that game.
Having watched the soccer highlights tonight I have concluded quite emphatically that soccer is very very un-Australian.
Has anyone else thought that?
