BACK THEN: TOP 10 Rules of Childhood African Street Football (page 2)

7. The Best Players Are Always Selected First

Before any game starts, the transfer window was to be open. Breaking a record transfer fee was to be selected first. However, even if you were a Ronaldinho back then, and had issues with the ball owner, the transfer window was closed for you.

There were some multi-talented players; players who were best on each and every position. So you would be a forward, but asked to be a temporary goal keeper in case there is a penalty; and then come back to your position; Crazy!!
