“Sweetie…. Ati ulisema freekick ni nini?” If you’re an avid World Cup fan and you have a girlfriend/wife you can relate to the above questions. Before the World Cup began, bae never cared about football. In fact, she would always ask “Kwani hii Arsenal unaipenda kuniliko?” (The honest answer….. is yes…. Ozil baana).
All of a sudden, you’re now experiencing the emotional roller-coaster of soccer nights together. I’m not the only one whose bum is digging craters on the sofa whenever VAR is called in to play.
“Hun… Hii VAR inamaanisha nini?”
“View Anything in Rewind” I reply.
The thing about your bae starting to watch football is that you have to respond to the same questions over and over again. You have to start teaching her about how football works. Depending on how you do it, you can either make or break your relationship.
As a result of getting tired of these many questions and queries, we have decided to help all the men out there by creating a rule sheet which you can all print and hand over to your girl whenever the many questions are asked. These will especially come in handy now that the semi-finals are here with us and most Kenyan women are supporting France.
- Free Kick – This happens sometimes when you commit a foul, you get penalized with a Free Kick. If you want more money, avoid a free kick
- Counter attack – After the game, footballers go to the bar and attack the counter. The younger you are, the more the counter attacks you are expected to be involved in.
- Referee – The person who gives you a recommendation when you intend to join a new team.
- DM – This is a footballer who is particularly good at social media use. Ngolo Kante is the best because he has intercepted many girls in his DM
- Hazard – Any player that scores a goal. “Huyo ni Mbappe amefunga hio own goal babe?” “Eeh…”
- Maradona – The person in charge of parties at World Cups
- Draw – The team with the better artistic skills gets to win the game
- Belgium – The name of any team that wins the game
- Full time – When the players leave the game for a food break
- Linesman – The guy responsible for drawing the lines on the pitch. “Aki babe… hawa linesmen wanachora pitch vipoa”
Now strangely, these events can all happen together in one game. How would you feel if Lukaku hit the woodwork and Belgium lost? What if both Kane and Modrić scored then both teams draw at the semi’s and went to extra time? This is the unpredictability of World Cup.
What if I told you that you’d be able to place a bet on each of these events and win?
Actually, Nairobians are crazy about it right now with the World Cup. Heard of JengaBet? It’s is an enhanced product by SportPesa which allows you to customize your bet by making multiple predictions on the same game.
