History is a narration of the events which have happened among mankind, including an account of the rise and fall of nations. There have always been stories around talking about the past that are told to younger ones or someone who missed the action.
In this article, I will make use of the word “Legend” . Legend as we all know it to be is someone with great legacy , but I am making use of Legend in literature .

The India national team players were not seen when the match started but the opponent could see the ball moving like someone is playing it .

They were not done yet , as they metamorphosed the ball into an angry running lion. As an individual when you see danger, you flee for your safety. The ball transforms into a lion that runs towards the goalkeeper who attempts to save the ball. After the keeper runs for his life, the team conceds.
