Animal soccer game was seemed to be looked like a rugby game but was much excited. Turtle team won the game 1-0. It was hard for multi-legged robot to kick the ball. KHR Class soccer ball used in the game also seems to be too small for robot with log size multi-legs because the ball passed through under the body and could not be dribbled.
