Where's Wooliam?

This afternoon, we had a special guest who came to our school assembly.  His name was "Wooliam" and he is the official Fifa Under-20 Football World Cup mascot.  He told us about the four games that are to be played at the Northland Events Centre in the next month.  The games for these games are:  30th May, 2nd June, 7th June and the 11th of June.  The five teams include Myanmar, USA, Fiji, Uzbekistan and the Ukraine.  All of these teams are scheduled to play against each other at the Northland Events Centre.  Wooliam said that he was from the a high-country sheep farm in Otago and was feeling pretty warm in Northland.  He also said that he had been looking forward to the tourney since he was just a wee lamb.  Wooliam gave out several prizes to children who answered some football questions.
