Beach Football


My mom always says that sport and music can easily cross national borders. She is still working in Liberia, and lives in an apartment facing the Atlantic Ocean. As she can enjoy the magnificent view of the ocean from her apartment, the residence is named Ocean View. She not only enjoys looking out over the sea but also watching football games on the beach. That is beach football!

Every Sunday, young Liberian men come to the beach and enjoy playing football there. Look! Each scene is really picturesque!


The pitch is not sectioned off by lines.



The goal is made of two wooden sticks.



The man kicks the ball at the foreshore.



One-on-one in the wet sand



Free kick on the beach



Throw-in on the beach



The man retrieves the ball, which rolled into the ocean.



Beach football looks “beary” interesting! I wish I could join them.
