Soccer is a sport that many people play. There has to be at least 11 players on the field. 10 players and the goalies. There are different types of positions like forward, mid field, defense, and goalies. The point is to score. The forwards job is to score all the goals. The mid fielders position is to help forward and and defense. Defenses job is to not let the other team score. You have to wear shinguard to protect your shin. You cannot use your hands unless you are the goalies. You have to be in the goalies box to be able to grab the ball. The best soccer team in my opinion is called Real Madrid. Well that’s one of the best teams of Spain. The key to scoring is passing. If you are in the goalies box and your about to score and someone fouls you, then it’s a penalty. It’s a shot against the goalies. It’s a shot inside the goalies box, and 12 feet away from the goalies line. So the game begins with the toss of a coin, and the winning captain decides which goal to defend or take the first kick off.

Soccer is one of the world’s most popular sports, there are a lot of people that don’t like it. Here are the top 5 rules of soccer. You can’t use your hands. The next rule is you cannot be off-sides, it’s not a difficult concept. If you’re behind the last player when the ball is played to you then you’re off-side. Another one is PK’s (penalty kick). You’re 12 yards away from a huge goal with just one tiny person in the middle that couldn’t possibly cover the whole net so how do you know not make it every time? Unfortunately, it’s much more than that. It’s a mind game. And unfortunately a game can end in a tie. In some games like semi-finals or finals, you go to extra time or straight to penalty kicks. Over time is usually 10 to 15 minutes. Well it’s 15 minutes in the professional leagues

. One time I played a soccer game in the finals. We tied 4-4, so we went to extra time. Each extra half-times were 10 minutes long. We had 1 minute to get water but we couldn’t step off the field. Well, we played the 20 minutes and nobody scored. So it went to penalties or as some people call it, sudden death. So the coach picks 5 players to shoot, they did a coin flip to see who started. We started  first, so our player shot and scored. Until our 4th shooter missed, our goalies had to block it so we could keep on shooting. And a miracle happened, he blocked it. You might not believe this but everyone on our team shot. But after our goalie blocked their shot, who ever missed was out, unless the other team missed. So all 10 players from every team shot. So it came down to the goal keepers. I don’t know how but the goalie missed and ours scored.
