“Football is a game of friendship. It is meant to bring people from all walks of like irrespective of age, sex, culture, religion or creed together. It meant to bring unity.

“Football is also the biggest sport in the world and belongs to us all. We must support all effort to keep the game safe. Football would be better if played and followed in a peace. I appeal to all football lovers to support football without violence. Let’s support 1 GAME,” Shaggy said.
