Pope to kids: I wasn't 'bravo' at soccer, so I played goalie

ROME — Pope Francis has told children at an Italian sports center he didn't play soccer very well as a youth and was stuck with the nickname "tough leg."

An 11-year-old boy asked Francis during a parish visit in the Rome suburb of Acilia Sunday afternoon if he had played soccer as a child.

Francis, a keen soccer fan in his native Argentina, said since he wasn't "bravo" he usually ended up playing goalie.
