  1. Dear Mr. Challanger,

    I‘m reading your „Football English“ book in the english version and I can tell you that I really like your book and the different exercises.
    It makes a lot of fun to learn the football words in your book. So well done:)
    Just one note:
    On page 35, exercise 5, I have found a small mistake. Nr. 3.b) it should be „TEAM A…“ not „Have A…“.
    Maybe you can change it in the next version.
    Thank you for your book.
