To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union’s Foundation Day, my class football team recently played a friendly football match with Hung Vuong High school’s Football team. The match was held at 2.30 p.m on 1st of March on our school’s playground. (3)
From then on, the match became more exciting. In the second half, our team played in greater determination. One of our excellent defenders, Tuan , took a ball and passed it skillfully to our striker, Lam, who gave a final kick into the goal. The stadium was “broken” again in the shouts and whistles of the spectators. It was one against one. The atmosphere at the stadium made the match became tenser and tenser. Both teams tried to win. Many good chances to make more score were missed. Everyone had tried their best but no more score was given. (4)
