'I have played/I have been playing' tense.

In the Calcio lesson you translate 'Gioco a calcio da quando ero piccolo e gioco anche' as 'I played football since I was young....'. I can't imagine anyone saying this in English! Surely, we would say 'I've been playing football/I've played football...'.I love your lessons, which are superb, but find this one particular translation a bit puzzling!!
