Football As A Game
Association football, also known as just football, is an inter-national team sport usually played between two sides of eleven players each. It is played professionally by about 250 million players across more than 200 nations and dependencies, which make it the fourth most popular sport in the world. The game is very simple: Each side attempts to take the ball from the other side, using any number of passes (passing is done through the legs of the player). The object of the game is to become the first team to score more goals than the other team.
The word football is derived from the French word “fain”, which mean “free”, and the English word “fuss” meaning “ball”. This game is played in a rectangular field with goals at both ends called corners. The football is a hard sphere made of hard rubber or plastic and surrounded by a layer of air or nitrogen. The object of the game is to hit the ball into the goals.
Two types of football are played in organized competitions, namely Association football and International soccer. Association football is played between teams of the same nation; the international game is played between teams of different nations. There are several soccer clubs around the world, the most famous of which is the Manchester City Football Club in England. In addition, there are hundreds of youth teams that play every week, and many even attend local recreational football leagues.
