Boy’s Dreams Come True – level 2

03-04-2018 15:00

A boy from a poor family in Afghanistan captured the Internet’s heart after he customised a plastic bag into a Lionel Messi shirt.

The five-year-old boy had his dreams come true, as the footballer sent him a package with a football and two football jerseys. One jersey is from the Barcelona team and the second one is from the Argentina team.

The Afghan boy is happy and he proudly wears his number 10 football jerseys.

Difficult words: capture (to catch), customise (to change something the way that you like it), jersey (a sports shirt).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about the boy’s plastic bag jersey?
