You probably know I love soccer. You might learn a bit about soccer during this post.

First of all I am on the Comox valley U12 rep soccer team. My favourite position is left midfield. I used to play left defence but I like to play left midfield now. My number is 37 on my rep team. My cleats are Messi indoor and Magista outdoor. This year I joined a soccer program called Upper Island Riptide. I will be playing soccer four days a week including Riptide three days a week and rep one day a week!

Time to talk about professional soccer. My favourite soccer player is Messi. He plays for a team called Barcelona FC. Barcelona is my favourite soccer team. Barcelona plays a 4-3-3 lineup. Forward:  LF- Neymar, CF- Suarez, RF- Messi. Midfield: LM- Iniesta, CM- Busquets, RM-Rakitic. Defence: LD- Digne, CD- Pique, CD- Mascherano, RD- Vidal, GK- Bravo.

My favourite international team is Argentina. Messi is from Argentina, and Argentina came second in the last World Cup. In four World Cups, Germany has beaten Argentina in the finals. Argentina always seems to come second!

I hope you learned a little bit about soccer.

Who is your favourite soccer player?

    I like your post! It has lots of soccer information that I didn’t know, and was very interesting. I don’t play or watch soccer myself, but I have heard of Messi, so I guess he would be my favourite soccer player.
    You play soccer a lot! Are you still doing soccer this year? Are you on the same team?
