Mr Obama vocal in support of soccer-playing daughters 

Monday May 18, 2009

While his own preferred sports are basketball and golf, US President Barack Obama was there on the sidelines to cheer on his daughters Malia and Sasha at the weekend when they took part in separate soccer matches.

Casually attired in jeans and a jacket emblazoned with the logo of the White Sox baseball team, the proud presidential dad joined other soccer parents to watch the matches in Washington. And he proved one of the most vocal supporters, roaring: "Go... go... go... goal," as seven-year-old Sasha's team scored.

Soccer seems especially popular among girls in the US, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are often pictured catching the latest game featuring the Mission Impossible actor's 15-year-old adopted daughter Isabella
