Abstract

As we all known football or soccer is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players using a spherical ball.
The game is played on a rectangular grass or artificial turf field with a goal in the centre of each of the short ends. The object of the game is to score by driving 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 more goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is tied at the end of the game or a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/or a penalty shootout, the result depends on the format of the competition.
