When you are truly passionate about something, nothing can stop you from achieving it. The world throws us many obstacles, but it is how we overcome them that matters. This was proven right by a group of specially-abled men who defied all odds by playing a game of football. People normally assume that a high-intensity sport like football would require players to be physically fit. However, a video going viral shows that even without having fully-functional limbs, one can ace the sport.
The undated video originally credited to World Amputee Football Federation was shared on Twitter by Indian Police Service officer Santosh Singh. The 1-minute and 20-second clip shows a football match between Spain and England's specially-abled team. In the video, several amputee men wearing crutches play the game with enthusiasm and don't let their disability hold them back. Players are seen kicking the football, scoring amazing goals and celebrating with their teammates, as they enjoy the game.
"Human spirit has no limits," reads the caption.
