Football - Soccer

Organized soccer with rules began in Britain where it is commonly called football. Rules were first established in 1863 by the English Football Association and the game is sometimes known as 'Association Football' to distinguish it from other football games like Rugby Football, American Football and Australian Rules Football. It is more commonly known as soccer in North America. It is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world. Football is played on a rectangular grass or artificial turf field, with a goal at each of the short ends. The object of the game is to score by maneuvering the ball with any part of the body, except a hand or forearm, into the opposing goal.

What is a shoot out in soccer?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Generally, shootouts are used only in knockout games, to decide who will progress to the next stage of a tournament, or who will win it. Usually extra time has been played first. The team to take the first kick is decided by a coin toss. All players other than the kicker and the goalkeepers must remain in the pitch's centre circle. Each kick is taken from the penalty mark, with the goal defended only by the opposing goalkeeper. The goalkeeper must remain between the goal-posts on his goal-line until the ball has been kicked, although he can jump in place, wave his arms, move side to side along the goal line or otherwise try to distract the shooter. Each kicker can kick the ball only once per attempt. If the ball is saved by the goalkeeper the kicker cannot score from the rebound (unlike a normal penalty kick). Similarly, if the ball bounces off the goal posts, the kicker cannot score from the rebound. Each tea must choose 5 players to take the kicks and 1 goal keeper.

What is the value of a football autographed by the UT National Champions football team?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Well, it really depends on how good the football team was and how many people liked them. I would say for a team signed by the 1998 Virginia football team could be worth maybe hundreds or maybe thousands. I really don't know but to really get money, maybe sell it to a Virginia football team fan. I hope this informed you enogh if it did not you should sue wiki answeres.

What does a soccer game begin with?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Soccer games are often preceded by a coin toss, equipment and field check, and a number of other logistical matters that the referees must attend to. The game itself begins at the first kick-off, when the ball is kicked and moves forward by the team taking the kick-off (thus, the team that lost the coin toss), which cannot happen until the referee has signaled permission to begin by blowing his whistle.
