My Football Bucket List

Football provides you with emotions and feelings that nothing else in the world does, and that’s why it is the beautiful game. My love for the sport will never die, and there a plenty of things I would love to experience within the game. So here is my football bucket list, made up of 18 experiences, one for every year of my life so far, that I aim to experience in the rest of my life.
