Good Luck.
Football fans in the English city [of / from] Leicester have been celebrating a fairytale [win / winning] for their club. Leicester City won England's Premier League for the first time in [that / their] 132-year history. The team beat the [traditional / traditionally] powerhouses of Manchester United and Chelsea to the title. Many journalists are [said / saying] it is the greatest achievement in the history of sport. Leicester were [low / bottom] of the 20-team Premier League last year. They were nearly [relegation / relegated] to a lower league. However, their [style / stylish] of play totally changed this year. Their team spirit, the introduction of new players and a new coach all [combed / combined] to make them almost unbeatable. They won the title on Monday night and their supporters around the world went [crazily / crazy] .

Leicester City were [promoted / prompted] to England’s Premier League only two years ago. They were hot favourites to go back [up / down] to the lower league again [this / the] season. No one gave them a chance of [wins / winning] the Premier League. Last August, they were 5,000-1 against winning the title. That means if you had [put / done] a $1 bet on them to win, you could now [collection / collect] $5,000. The actor Tom Hanks said he bet $100 [in / on] Leicester to win and will now get $500,000 back. Leicester's [hole / whole] team cost less to buy than just one star in the top teams. [Despite / Spite] this, two Leicester players won the top player of the year awards in England. It is also likely that Leicester's Italian manager Claudio Ranieri will be world [coach / couch] of the year.
