If I play football since I was eight years old and still I am playing football I should say I have been playing football since I was eight.
But if I started playing football when I was eight and then stopped it 2 years later(now I retire from playing football) I should say I was playing football since I was eight?
So am I correct?
Because I have learned that present perfect continuous is for events that are connected to now but past continuous is finished in the past. (example)
