Such unwholesome acts in our society is really bad and its one of the indiscipline attitudes among the youth who don't consider the repercussions associated with that.
Playing football games during our leisure time is to release stress and to also engage in socialization with other community age mates where both the talented and those learning the playing of football showcase their skills.
Most often, what brings about such unhealthy competition in most of these games could be attributed to football gambling where the two sides make provisions to that and roughly play the game to ensure they recoup what they gambled with.
Most of the youth before football games resort to the intake of alcohol or any hard drugs whereas others hide in their pocket a sharp or piercing object like knife, a pair of compass, nails etc to fight when they feel cheated or in the event of a mayhem that could occur.
Im highly optimistic that the law shall take its on course of action against the perpetrator who stabbed his colleague due to such a small altercation that occurred between them, leading to amother confrontation.
