For the last couple of years, I’ve been getting together with group of guys and playing “mini-football” on some artificial turf fields near the Sunday Souq (souq al-a7ad). The size of the field/pitch is similar to an indoor pitch, but there are out-of-bounds lines…so it’s different from both indoor and outdoor soccer. Almost more like basketball…including the fact that it’s five on five.
We had a video camera and an early match last week (usually it’s dark when we play), and our coach posted this little clip of our match against an Armenian team. The clip is basically just a highlights reel of the goals.
We held them goal for goal until the half, and then they took us to town during the second half. The final was 8-4.
