Since the president Xi Jinping took office, the football reform had become a hot topic in China.
I watch every FIFA World Cup match since I was ten years old, when I also started playing football. My greatest wish is to see Chinese football team can goes to the World Cup, but it always disappoints me except the one in 2002 FIFA World Cup, it didn’t do well anyway. I believe most of football fans like me have been hurt by Chinese football team.
But apart from the bad management of the football association, I can see why Chinese football has always been weak somehow. When I was a high school student, I used to like playing football very much, and I liked to play it for one or two hours with my friends after school. I took it as a good hobby and it could help me keep healthy and active, but my teachers didn’t think so. They always took the study as the most important part in our high school age, they wanted us to focus on study, which meant to put every minute on the study. Furthermore, the year I went to senior grade, the school decided to block out the football field, no one was allowed to play football in it. This was definitely a disaster to Chinese football career.
I hope the football reform will bring some changes in the high schools, free the football field, let us keep loving the football.
