Model Answer:
Saudi Arabia is the land of diversity and people remain busy round the hours for their respective business. But people also take part in recreational activities as well. The number of sports is limited here and thus football has become the most popular form. In the recent past years, football has replaced all the other forms of outdoor sports and now the team is internationally recognized. I think this candidate task is a nice one and I am glad to deal with this one. I will describe the sport now.

Playing football is easier than playing any other sports. It requires a ball to be played. A large playground is the second necessary thing that is needed for playing football. The ball could also be played with or without shoes. But when someone is playing at a large stadium or any international match, it is a must to wear shoes to play football for many reasons and safety is one of them. Moreover, a team jersey is also required in such case.

Football is played in different ways. There are different positions in the field and the players are to play the role of attackers, defenders or as the goalkeepers. Two teams usually participate in the sport and try to make goals to win the matches. The players try to dodge the opposite team players and insert the ball into the net of the opponent team. The team which scores more goals becomes the winner.

This is a popular sport for many reasons. Most importantly, it is an exciting game. When an international match is held, the stadiums get filled with the spectators and even there is ticket shortage sometimes. Football also has some physical benefits as well. Based on the facts, football has become the most popular sport in the country.
