Football at the end of a hot day in Oman
Saturday afternoons are the traditional time for professional football matches in the UK. In Oman, in almost every city, town and village, there are dusty flat square patches of ground, which come alive at about 4.30 pm, when the local lads come done and make the most of the cooler hour or two before sunset at the end of the day to play some football.
This pitch here in Al Hamra.
My team, Southampton, won 1-3 today to take them to 9th place, just two points behind the second team in their league.
