Transcript of Soccer

Being one of the world's most popular sport, association football, or soccer, is a sport played between two groups with a spherical ball and 11 players in each group. The aim of the game is to score by driving and passing the ball--with body parts besides arms and hands-- into the goal of the opponent team. Association Football In each team, there are no more than ten outfield players and one goalkeeper (goalie); there are also 3-7 substitutes that stay on the bench when their teammates are playing.
Only the goalie is allowed to use hands and arms to play, but only in his penalty area.
The match lasts two period of 45 minutes with a half-time interval that is not over 15 minutes in between
The referee's objective is to ensure the safety of the games. A goal is scored when the ball completely pass over the goal line. The team that scores a greater number of the goal wins. If the two steams score same number of goal or no goals are scored, the match is drawn. In this case, extra time may be provided. History General Rules Scoring Rules Fouls and Misconducts If a player attempts to kick, trip, hit, charge, spit, hold, or push an opponent, a direct free kick is granted to the opposite team. A corner kick is a kick taken from the nearest corner where the ball crossed Dribbling Techniques Dribbling allows a player to possess the ball and move it up and down the field. To dribble efficiently, keep the ball under your control: touch the ball with every step you take on the field; kick the ball lightly with each moves.

Don't look down to the ball, for by doing so you wouldn't know which direction you're going. look forward for your fellow players or the goal and watch out for your opponents instead.

When changing direction, you need to leave yourself some space to do the direction; turn away from your opponent and use the inside or outside of your foot to steer the ball. Since ancient time, sports similar to modern soccer were played by the Chinese, Romans, Greek and Japanese.
In 1815, written soccer rules emerged in England.
In 1863, the fundamental rules of soccer was set up in London.
British traders, sailors and soldiers introduce soccer to other parts of the world.
FIFA was established in 1904, and Leagues of different countries began to emerge by then. Soccer Field and the Ball & When is the ball in/out of play? Out of play when:
The ball is stopped by the referee
In of play when:
The ball rebounds from the referee or assistant referee on the field of play Soccer Equipments Shooting Techniques When shooting the soccer ball to get it into the goal, observe the opponent goalkeeper's position to look for gaps for you to exploit. Stabilize your body and put your non-kicking foot alongside the ball.
When striking, keep your heads down and your eyes on the ball.
Be composed and do not rush when making the shot.
Shoot the ball low and without flying above the air, for this makes the ball more difficult to block by the goalie; shoot across the opponent goalie, because this makes the ball harder to stop for them. Goalkeeping techniques Always be prepared. When the opponent is attacking, be ready to grab the ball out of the air.
For beginners, stand in front of the goal with hands at the side and palms facing the ball. Your feet should not be wider than your shoulder. Lower your center of gravity, and keep your weight on the front of your feet. Kicks used to restart the game If a player committed the fouls that lead to direct free kicks within his own penalty area, a penalty kick is granted to the opposite team. If a player committed offenses, such as playing dangerously, or if a goalkeeper touches the ball with hands in wrong time or position, an indirect free kick is granted to the opposite team Direct free kick means that the ball are kicked directly into the opponent's goal from where the foul occurs (the team scored) or into the team's own goal (the opponent team gets a corner kick). If the ball cross over the goal line without scoring, a corner kick is granted to the team. Indirect free kick means that the ball are kicked into the opponents' goal from where the foul occurs, but the goal may not be scored in the first kick without touching other players. Penalty kick is a direct free kick taken from 12 yards out from the goal. Position of the Players The above formation, 4-4-2, is the most common in modern soccer Defending Techniques Keep the opponent and the ball in front of you and under your control.
Bend your knees and stand on your toes steadily.
Always be aware and be prepared to move quickly to block the opponent's ball.
Force the attacker into pressure.
Watch out for the support from the other team. Passing allows a player to deliver the ball to his/her teammates in advanced position. To pass the ball successfully, be aware of the surrounding opponents and watch for the right timing to make the pass. A forward pass is always the preferable position if it is unnecessary to do pass sideways or backward. Passing Techniques Side foot pass: In soccer, side foot pass is the most common and easiest pass to perform. To do so, level the non-striking foot with the ball, then strike the ball with the inside of your other foot. Try to hit the ball on center and try not to hit it above air, for a ball in air takes longer to control then one that's rolling on the ground. END :) Tackling Techniques Slow your opponent down and steer him/her into a advantageous position on the field
Knock the ball with the inside of your foot and win the possession, or poke the ball away
To prevent falling down and failing, always keep playing in a balanced position
Pressure your opponent into an unbalanced position to get the ball. Besides knocking off the ball, try catching the ball as well: catch the ball near your chest, above your chest, or scoop it up if it is a ball rolling on the ground! Soccer is a magical game
