It is incredible that one sport can have such a big impact around the world. Political issues and wars come to a halt just to watch two teams play on a pitch of grass for 90 minutes. It starts with an "S" in America, but it goes by its traditional name across the globe: Football. 

For me, football (soccer) is the beautiful game for its unpredictability. The fact that Leicester City could win the Premier League and Greece the Euro Cup are prime examples that anything is possible in this game. Writing for The18 allows me to express my thoughts and opinion about current events in a sport that I am truly passionate about.
