Many young children love football, some are brought up to play from a very young age in local teams and some start later on, maybe during school years.
Nowadays there are so many options in school for children to play soccer, most schools now teach football as an actual physical education activity.
The majority of children love this and get the chance to bring in their kids soccer jerseys to show off who they support! You can find a large range of soccer kit from many online stores around the World.
Children will be brought up differently, some children get a choice in who they support but unfortunately some don't and are persuaded to support a team their parents do.
It is fair that children should get the right to choose who they want to support.
There are a wide variety of football teams to support,

With injuries meaning Danny Welbeck had been restricted to just 15 Premier League starts for Arsenal in the last two seasons, it was brilliant to see him begin the 2017/2018 campaign fully fit and firing.
Actually being able to enjoy a preseason has undoubtedly been hugely beneficial for him, something he duly noted after his impressive brace vs. Bournemouth. "The past two years I didn't have a preseason and that made it a bit difficult for me,'' he explained.
"I'm pleased to have a preseason. With some of the games that we've played at the start of the season it's not gone too well, but I'm pleased to be on the score sheet and long may it continue."
Arsene Wenger then made a point of praising

Replacing Benjamin Mendy, who became the world's most expensive defender when he joined Manchester City for €56 million, was never going to be easy for AS Monaco. But in the form of young Brazilian fullback, Jorge, they've done so rather seamlessly, as the 21-year-old has stepped up and filled the void with aplomb.
Joining in January from Flamengo for €8.5m, the diminutive left back had to bide his time during the second half of the season behind Mendy, having to be content with just 90 minutes of playing time. Since Mendy's summer departure, however, the once capped Brazil international has grasped his opportunities with both hands, as he's enjoyed a superb start to the new term. His most recent outing for the Monegasques' vs. Strasbourg provided yet another glowing testament to his quality.

Radamel Falcao marked his 50th Ligue 1 appearance in fine style by putting in a lively shift throughout AS Monaco's league opening 3-2 win vs. Toulouse. Moreover, his wonderfully taken headed goal impressively saw him notch up his 33rd strike in his 40 starts and 10 substitute appearances in France too, a figure that's especially admirable due to his battles with injury.
Having now scored 22 goals in the last 30 matches for the Monegasques, the 31-year-old is certainly showing no signs of slowing down. From the outset, the Colombian hitman was a persistent nuisance to the Toulouse backline, and his direct opponent, Christopher Julien, in particular, bore the brunt of his fine exertions.
Starting with his thoughtful movement, Falcao used his aptitude in this regard to find space in between the Toulouse midfield and defensive line, where he then used his strength and

Speculation about the future of AS Monaco's teenage sensation, Kylian Mbappe, has been relentless this transfer window.
Following his magnificent 2016/2017 campaign, where he blasted home a superb 26 goals in all competitions on his way to being a formidable element of Monaco's Ligue 1 title winning side, who also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, he's been linked with basically all of Europe's elite.
The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, to name a few, have all courted the youngster, even if his price tag would be in the region of a staggering £180 million. Monaco's vice-president Vadim Vasilyev did, however, suggest the prize asset is a decent chance to remain in the principality too. "Mbappe will make the right decision. He has never expressed a wish to leave us," he said.
"We are, however, in

Everything seems to be falling into place nicely for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City ahead of the upcoming Premier League campaign.
Knowing he needed reinforcements to his squad after his first season, the club's hierarchy have duly obliged his wishes, as Man City Premier League have spent a mouthwatering £220 million on new signings. Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo have vitally strengthened and added some much needed dynamism to their fullback ranks, with the aging Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov all moving on.

When James Rodriguez joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2014, he seemed to have the football world at his feet.
Fresh off the back of a stellar World Cup campaign, carrying Colombia to the quarter-finals and finishing as the tournament's top scorer along the way, his £63 million move to the Bernabeu appeared to crown him as the new prince of European football; Lionel Messi and new team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo still contested the throne, but Rodriguez was surely the heir apparent.
But three years on, the 26-year-old's Real Madrid tenure cannot

When he took over as Spanish national team manager, Julen Lopetegui made a point of looking to the future and doing things his way, in his style, for he knew comparing himself to the magnificent success Spain had enjoyed under Luis Aragones and Vicente del Bosque in recent years wouldn't be a wise move.
"In my opinion, the generation that has just passed is without doubt the most brilliant not just in the history of Spanish football, but one of the best in the history of world football, so comparing anything to that is not fair and would be a mistake," he insists.
"But that doesn't mean we haven't got good footballers: we have got good footballers, with ambition, personality, desire. Players who are making big steps, but to follow their path, not someone else's."

With Laurent Koscielny, Rob Holding, Gabriel Paulista and the soon to be arriving Shkodran Mustafi all ahead of him in the central defensive pecking order going into the season at Arsenal, it made perfect sense for Calum Chambers to head out on loan.
Joining Middlesbrough presented him with a fantastic opportunity to prove himself at the highest level and obtain the vital game time he craved. And although he's had his troubles with injury, most notably when he missed a crucial two month stretch between February and April, the Englishman's time on Teesside has unquestionably been littered with upside.

An unwritten "non-aggression pact" between Real Madrid and cross-capital rivals Atletico Madrid means that the two sides do not pursue each other's players for the sake of neighbourly relations. But according to widespread reports in the Spanish media, the European champions are preparing to break the agreement to sign 19-year-old left-back Theo Hernandez from Los Colchoneros this summer.
It's not completely unknown for players to swap one side of Madrid for the other, with Real legends Hugo Sanchez and Raaj both having been poached from At
