Goal in football

29 October 2014, 11:39 Jibunor George Chuks.

Goal has actually stand for so many things, good things as it may be. Like one radio station in Nigeria who took interviews from different tribes in the country to tell and confirm what goal is called in their tribal languages. This where there responses; goal is goal, no matter from any tribe you pronounce it in Nigeria. It was an awesome one indeed. Just like how many players have failed or have tried to produce this goal but it definitely seems like not happening; but just as the saying ”the stone that the builders rejected has turn into a corner stone” just only one goal in their name turns everything around, their fellow players get to laugh and smile with them.

This equally applies in our life outside the pitch. You could find out only but few are just those that would remain with you when things are not moving fine with you; but immediately when your goals turns into joy, there and then could you see many people to celebrate with you. Goals in football unites the forgotten players with their mates, coach and fans. The same way, goals achieved in life brings people, friends and families all around you. Work towards this goals and you will definitely have a reason to always be happy and joyful. Let's allow this one language ''goal'' to be our language in the country and it will definitely unite us all. God bless you all.
