Football

Soccer, is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world.

It is a football variant played on a rectangular grass or artificial turf field, with a goal at each of the short ends.

The object of the game is to score by manoeuvring the ball into the opposing goal.

In general play, the goalkeepers are the only players allowed to use their hands or arms to propel the ball; the rest of the team usually use their feet to kick the ball into position, occasionally using their torso or head to intercept a ball in midair.

The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins.

If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/or a penalty shootout, depending on the format of the competition.
