The Game of Football
Association football, usually known as football or soccer, is the most popular game in the world. It is a team sport played with a spherical ball and two teams of eleven players each. It is played on a field measuring about 115 yd by 74 yd with a goal at either end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing team’s goal. The team that scores the most goals at the end of the match wins.
The only player allowed to touch the ball with his hands or arms while it is in play is the goalkeeper while he is inside the ‘penalty area’, which is a rectangle marked out directly in front of the goal, 18 yd away from the center on either side and in front. The other players may kick the ball with their feet and legs, and use their head and/or torso to manipulate and move the ball.
A standard adult football match lasts for two ‘halves’ of 45 minutes each. Each half runs continuously, meaning that the clock is not stopped when the ball is out of play. There is usually a 15-minute half-time break between halves. The end of the match is known as full-time. In the event of a draw the game may go into extra time with two additional 15-minute periods.
