Football in the country of the Pygamous – Two teams are playing the last minutes of a tough football match. A player takes a penalty kick and unexpectedly the ball falls well beyond the door into the monkeys’ territory. Curious about this object that they had never seen before, the monkeys start stealing it from each other until the ball slips from their hands and rolls away. This time it is a child of the Pygamou tribe who finds the ball but he does not know what it is either. The whole tribe gathers to look at the mysterious object and the leader decides to make a contest: the person who can grab and keep the ball will win a prize. The children start chasing the ball but it is very fast and at dawn, after running for a whole afternoon and night, the children are exhausted and fall asleep. Without knowing it, they have discovered the secret of football.
