    Verb form

    1. I see him play football
    2. I see him playing football

    - I understand No.1 is correct, but what about No.2? Is it correct too?

    Re: Verb form

    After reading this post, I think that:
    I saw him play football ── I saw the whole of his football game.
    I saw him playing football ── I saw him when he was playing football.
