Loads of children in Iraq have grown up in the middle of all the fighting that's happened since the US-led invasion in 2003. Newsround Lizo went to meet some of them to find out what their lives are really like.
It's one of the British troops' jobs to try to help local people in Iraq and Lizo got to meet loads of children at a school the RAF had been helping to rebuild in Iraq's second biggest city, Basra.
Lots of children told Lizo they loved their new school and were used to seeing British troops out and about.
They said they enjoyed meeting the troops because they usually gave them presents.
Many children in Iraq don't have very much, as poverty can be just as big a problem as violence in some parts of the country.
Some said they wished their lives could be like those of the kids they see on TV.
But they still find ways to enjoy themselves and couldn't resist the chance to have a quick game of footie with Lizo.
Looks like he was no match for this young player, though!
