BUILDING BACKGROUND/CONNECTION PRIOR TO KNOWLEDGE:
Pupils are familiar with the topic in their previous classes.
Football is one of the oldest sports. Its origin is not very certain. Countries, such as England, Ireland and Italy have claimed the origin. In 1904, the Fèdèration Internationale de Football Association or International Football Association (FIFA) was formed. Football must have been introduced to Nigeria through our early contacts with the British missionaries and colonial adventurers in the early twentieth century. In 1945, Nigerian Football Association (NFA) was established and in 1959, the NFA was affiliated to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the FIFA., the body in charge of the game globally. Football is the most popular game in Nigeria today.
Various schools and colleges as well as football clubs all over Nigeria play the game. Nigerian national team (the Super Eagles) got the gold medal in the African Cup of Nations in 1980, and in 1994, Nigeria’s team finally reached the World Cup for the first time. Other World Cup appearances are in 1998, 2002 and 2010 in South Africa. In the junior categories, Nigeria’s Golden Eagles won the maiden edition of FIFA Kodak JVC World Cup in 1985. They also won it in 1993 and 2007. The Nigerian under-23 squad won the Olympic gold medal in Atlanta Olympics in 1996. The Nigerian Super Falcons (female national team) are the champions in Africa. They too have represented the country on many occasions.
Football is played by eleven players on each side. The game is started from the centre circle by a kick-off by a player from either of the two teams. It is played by both boys and girls, and men and women. The purpose of the game, which is of 90 minutes duration, is to score goals. Goals can be scored by playing the ball across the goal line, into the net between the goalposts. A goal could be scored by any player in the field of play.
The playing field for football is a rectangular space. The two longer lines are called touch lines while the two shorter lines are called goal lines.
The goalpost is placed in the centre of the goal line.
