Masseur in a goal - level 1

18-09-2013 14:00

People are playing football in Brazil. A masseur is standing at the goal. His team is in a bad situation.

There are players from the other team. They want to win. They want to get the ball into the goal. The masseur wants to help his team. When the other team kicks the ball into the goal, the masseur starts playing, too. He kicks the ball away.

A masseur cannot do this. The players of the other team are angry. They want to catch the masseur but he runs away.

Difficult words: masseur (person who helps people's bodies by touching them), goal (place where football players kick the ball), kick (hit with your leg).
