Football fever

The World Cup, which is the most popular games in the world , is coming in June. Tens of thousands of people around the world are looking forward to the games and are ready to stand for their favorite team. It is amazing that a sports can connect and uplift the entire human race.
I found out I liked football when I was seven years old.  My parents aren’t football fans and I didn’t play football, but I watched every live match of the 2002 World Cup on TV. At the time, I didn’t even completely understand the rules. 
I like watching football games, but the performance of the Chinese national team always disappoints me. Chinese athletes get great results in other sports, especially individual sports.
For team games, at least we have Yao Ming in basketball. His team did an impressive performance at the Beijing Olympic Games. 
The national football team though is far from such performance and not at an international level. It will probably be a while before we can cheer for our country in the football stadiums.
