How To Play Football
Have you ever wondered how to play Football, well today I am going to explain how to play the amazing game of Football. Football came from the country of England which started in the late 1800’s. The first Footballs were made out of inflated leather. Now days Footballs are made out of polyester or cotton blend. The goal of the game is to score a goal in the opposing team's net by kicking the ball into it.
There are eleven players on the field for Football. The players are : GK (Goalkeeper), LB (Left Back), RB (Right Back), LCB (Left Centre Back), RCB (Right Centre Back, LM (Left Mid), RM (Right Mid), CM (Centre Mid), LW (Left WIng), RW (Right Wing) and CF (Centre Forward). The backs mainly stay on their half of the field. The midfielders basicly move up and down the field and the forwards mainly are up the field.
The rules for Football are If the goalie picks up the ball he/she will have to kick it from inside the box but if their teammate passes the ball to the goalie he/she can’t pick it up. A throw in is taken when the ball crosses a sideline or leaves the field. For a proper throw-in you have to have both feet planted on the ground and to throw the ball with both hands over the head. The offside rule means if he/she is in the opposing team's half of the field and is also inline with the goal line as well as past the last defender with the ball their offside.
So why don't you go ahead buy a Football and have a game with your friends and give it a crack or maybe even join a Football club. So if you never knew how to play Football and read my explanation I hope you now know how to play Football.
