You’re never too young to start playing sport. And you’re never to young to make a complete idiot of yourself while doing so. The poor little girl who scored an own goal is going to be scarred for life.
I fully support getting kids to play sport as at young age as possible, assuming of course that they are interested. But there is always the risk of one of the kids messing up and being put off for life.
Playing sport is good for your health and fitness but not necessarily for your state of mind. Luckily, this little girl is likely to have laughed off the incident and just got on with it afterwards.
But in years to come she’ll see the clip on YouTube, hear the adults all laughing at her, and probably develop an eating disorder. Still, it’s funny for now and that’s all that matters really.
