Soccer, often known as football, is one of the world’s oldest and most well-known sports. The Football World Cup is the peak of international competition. Additionally, there are competitions like the African Cup of Nations, Copa America, and Euro Championships. The strongest domestic leagues are in Germany, Spain, Italy, and England (English Premier League, La Liga) (Bundesliga). The game is sometimes called soccer in other regions of the world.
The goal of the game
In a 90-minute game, football aims to score more goals than your opponent. The match is split up into two halves of 45 minutes. Players will have a 15-minute break known as halftime after the first 45 minutes of play. The second 45 minutes will start again, and the referee will add any additional time (injury time) as necessary.
Athletes and equipment
Each squad has eleven players. These consist of ten outfield players and one goalie. Each ground’s pitch is different, although they are about 120 yards long and 75 yards broad. Each pitch will include a center circle, an 18-yard box surrounding the 6-yard box, and a 6-yard box near the goal mouth. The dimensions of each side of the pitch must be identical to one another.
A field and a ball are the only accurate items for a soccer game. Players can don matching strips, shin guards, and studded football boots. The only players permitted to handle the ball are the goalkeepers, who will also wear cushioned gloves. There will be a captain chosen for each squad.
