Gingo
Jingo lives in Uganda and is totally nuts about football!

He plays for the Kampala Kids League which was set up five years ago to give more kids the opportunity to play sport.

Name: Jingo
Age: 13
Home: I live with my 10 brothers and sisters in Kampala, Uganda
Do you go to school? Yes. My Dad couldn't afford to send all of us to school full-time, but because I play football for a special league they help out with the cost.
Fave subject: English
How do you get there? Walk - it takes about 15 minutes

What do you do to have fun with your friends? Play football
What time do you have to go to bed? When I like
What do you worry about? Playing well and scoring goals!
If you could change anything about your life what would it be? Be a professional footballer and play football all the time!
What do you want to be when you grow up? Either a footballer or a journalist, or maybe even a sports reporter.

What other country would you most like to visit and why? I've been to the UK before with my football team and we visited a football stadium in London. I'd really like to go back to Manchester coz that's where my favourite team play.
What's your fave sport? Football - no surprises there then!
Do you support a football team? Manchester United. My favourite player is David Beckham - he's my idol. He's a flickit specialist and I would love to be like him and play for Man Utd.
