Association Football Or Soccer
Association football, otherwise known as just football or simply soccer, is an organized team sport usually played between two groups of eleven players each. It is the most popular sport in the world, playing on an oval field using three points.

Since then it has grown into one of the most famous and well known sports in the world.
The game of football involves eleven men on each team, with goalkeepers standing in the center of the goals, protected by the wall or from any other way. The game can be played with three different kinds of football equipment; football boots, soccer balls and apparel. Boots are mostly used by the forwards or attacking players while the goalkeeping goalkeeper wears goalkeeper’s gloves to prevent them from being touched by the football balls. The football ball used in Association football must be of regulation size and it must be round with three holes on the top.
Kick off is the main part of the game, it is usually played in the center of the pitch and is the first action that occurs when the game starts. When the ball is kicked, the defending team runs to the center of the field while the forward kicks the ball towards the opponents’ goal. The object of the game is to strike the ball over the goal line using the feet. The object of the game is to score more points than the other team. Points are scored by getting the ball into the goals.
