Soccer is one of the greatest sports on Earth. It is fun and great. Soccer is a game played by two teams on a rectangular field, with the object of driving the ball into the opponent’s goal. The ball is controlled and advanced primarily by using the feet; only goalkeepers are allowed to handle the ball. All that is needed to play is an area of open space and a ball.
