English essay It was a bright sunny day in July. The sky was painted a bright blue and the shiny green grass glistened in the sun. It was a great day for football. Russell, the manager, huddled us together and said the usual speech before the game, " I wan' to see you play your best and go on an show 'em what you got". "1, 2, 3, GO LIONS." everybody chanted in rhythm. My head up, I thought to myself the wonders of what would happen if we won the championship. I could see myself holding up the cup in glory, but if that was going to happen or not I wasn't sure. Before going on pitch, we all got kitted up in our neat yellow and blue strip.

The whistle blew to declare our loss, as all the Spartan fans jumped into the field and flooded the pitch with happiness. I went straight to my dad's car; I could not face any of the other teammates.
