Gone are the days! Kids of nowadays hardly play football. Street football is dying in Nigeria due to the following reasons:

(1) No playing fields in most private schools.
(2) Neighbourhoods are largely built up these days
(3) No vacant plots to play football anymore as we used to have it .
(4) More houses are now gated forestalling access to them
(5) Roads are busier these days, you dare not play on them
(6) Very dangerous society (vices like Kidnapping)
(7) Impact of television and technology in our daily lives (children stay glued to TV watching Cartoons, European Leagues etc)

it is dying because nigerians do not care about children
they will rather convert football fields to car sales lot, event center, or market

i live in festac and i see this all the time
very vexing

Ahh...
Well, our diction no reach dat level den, overstone was relatively a big grammar to us grin
Overstone is when the ball runs directly over the stone post and it can't be easily told if it's a goal or not, then we seek a neutral opinion grin

.The owner of the ball choses who plays. .the owner of the ball decides when the game ends by taking his ball home.
.the owner of the ball gains respect 4rm his closee elderz jst becoz they want 2 play on some occasions. .
the fat person is always the goal keeper.
if the ball passes over the goal post nd the owner of the ball says its a goal, ,the decision stands else #_ball dismiss
. .most annoying moment 2 the ball owner-someone beats him nd takes his ball by force
.most annoying moment-when ur team loses the game if anybody cross ur lane #_dead man alive
.most astonishing moment-when u dribble many people and score a goal #_king of soccer. .
most painful moment-the ball enters smelling mud nd someone happens 2 play it directly 2 ur face without cleaning it #_i no go gree dae tear shirt.
.most aggressive moment-u played under the rain, , the ball gets sandy all over and someone stamp it to ur back when u're without ur shirt #_laugh nd die;->
worst moment when ur jnr dribbles u nd plays the ball in between ur legs people start laughing including ur teammates, ,let the child laugh nd he smells his ass.
.buh in some localities the slogan goes_when the ball gets to the field,it is everyone's own. .that moment u are like #_OH HAD I KNOWN. ��
Rules governing the game-no shot. .burst nd pay, ,seize nd pay. .
The owner of the ball becomes king. .u start playing like #_Dimitr Berbatov. .i

We used to play low quality ball.
In Lagos, we call it Felele. When we play shot, the direction of the ball was determined by the direction of wind.
In my area we called it ''flying carpet''

Because of the deflection of Felele toward the wind... We usually perboil the ball and give it to vulcanizer to inflate it with their pumping machine....

Rules of football when we were kids

1. The fat kid was always the goalkeeper
2.The owner of the ball decides who plays
3. If you didn't participate in repairing the ball you were given a match ban
4. The guy who's never picked was to fetch the ball from the trees or bush when it got stuck, under the car or tunnel to play in the next game
5. When the owner of the ball got annoyed, game over
6. When you hit your toes against a stone and you notice blood, you quickly cover the area of injury with sand as a form of first aid and play continues
7. You can't dribble the owner too much, this may lead him to stop the game by taking away his ball.
8. No matter how many goals you scored, the winner would be determined by the last team to score
9.No offsides.
10.There is no referee.
11.There is fault only if the fault is serious .
12.The 2 best players can not play in the same team so everyone chooses their players.
13.If you are chosen last it is a humiliation and you will remain in defense.
14.If there is a penalty the goalkeeper is replaced by the best player of the team.
15.The best player on the field is always in the same team as the owner of the ball.
16.To distinguish the teams, one of the teams pulls off their shirts .
17.3 or 5 corner kicks in a row equal to a penalty.
18.There is always a house where when the ball fell there, we knew that the game was over. so be careful !!

19.Game over when its dark and we can barley see the ball, we all disperse in groups teasing one another until we get home to face another punishment from our parents.
Also....

A. 2 stones respresnt d goalposts.
B. It's always referred to as overstone when d goal is not clean
C. If d ball goes to hit an elderly person d ball is seized and all players must beg prostrating.
D. Head or tail when we toss d coin for which team would skin
E. Punctured felele ball is repaired with hot cutlass and rubber.
F. Later we started contributing money to buy balls to stop personal ownership.

However, you have forgotten that 11th commandment that says 'if you miss the ball, don't miss the leg'.
