Here in Vietnam the King sport is Soccer!
I enjoy watching it. I used to play a little when I'm younger, then watching more than playing and now even no time for watching much :( .

I know the King in the US & the Philippines is Basket Ball. In UK it's cricket above soccer.
Right?

It's gotta be soccer in Germany, closely followed by formula 1.

Thanks, for answers :) As I thought - soccer...ok. In fact, in Poland it's quite the same. We like football also volleyball, swiming and ski jumping.

It really looks like football is popular everywhere :) Well, I rather prefer to watch and in fact I don't know many girls who 'd like to play that game. Football is rather for boys...

In Vietnam, football is the most popular sport. If you come to Vietnam, you will see a lot of people playing football everywhere. From the pavements to alleys, children play football everyday no matter how weather is. Particularly, when the football competition is celebrated in Vietnam, you can see clearly the love of the fans. It is very exciting and friendly. When the national team wins a championship or just tight match, citizens will rush out the streets and celebrate the victory.
What is love ?

Right?

Americans love American's football, baseball, and basketball. Players from those three categories can reach millions in salary.
