Foot Ball

This is how a typical football field looks. A central circle and two penalty boxes are located at each end of the field. There is a penalty spot and a 6-yard box in each penalty box. Although not all pitches are the same size, they must be between 90 and 120 metres long and 45 to 90 metres wide. The penalty box is approximately 16m by 40m in size, with a 9m radius around the centre circle. At each end of the pitch, there are goalposts, with the penalty spot 11 metres (12 yards) directly in front of them.


Each team has 11 players on the field, with substitutes on the sidelines for both sides. Although there is no set arrangement for the players on the field, it is common to see a 4-4-2 configuration, which consists of four defenders, four midfielders, and two forwards.

A common line-up is depicted in the diagram below. Although a team may use this configuration, players are free to move around the field. The wingers frequently exchange sides in order to confuse the defence.
There are a few frequent postures that aren’t depicted in the diagram below.

CDM stands for Center Defensive Midfield. These guys play in the midfield but are defensively inclined, so when the ball is played forward, be sure to sit back a little more. These players are typically playmakers who can also tackle well.

CAM stands for Center Attacking Midfield. These players, too, play in central midfield but are more attack-minded, making them superb goal scorers.

RWB vs. LWB:

Backs of the right and left wings. These are defenders that enjoy sprinting up the wing and getting involved in the game. They are still defenders, so if a counter-attack is launched, they must rush back swiftly.

RW/LW stands for Right Wing and Left Wing, respectively. These are attacking positions, although these players typically play out wide on the wing in a 4-3-3 formation, which allows them to run up the wing before cutting inside or crossing the ball to the striker waiting in the middle.

CF stands for centre forward. This position is nearly identical to that of a striker, with the exception that he plays slightly more forwards towards the goal and has no specific area of the pitch in which he must remain.


The object of the game is to score more goals than your opponent by kicking the ball into their goal while still defending your own. A player can throw the ball to anyone on the field and, unlike in certain sports, can even run with it. When it comes to passing, there are only a few guidelines to follow. The first is the offside rule, which will be discussed further down. The next one is when the goalkeeper is passed back to you. If you use your feet to pass the ball to your keeper, he must also use his feet to play. He is allowed to pick up the ball if you head it back to him.

Quickfire etiquette

At the start of each half and following a team score, the ball is kicked off from the centre area. You used to have to pass the ball forwards first before passing it backwards, but that is no longer the case.

When the ball is kicked off, no players are allowed to be in the opposing half.

Any foul can result in a free kick or, if the infraction occurs in the penalty area, a penalty. Under the correct circumstances, there may be free kicks in the area.

A goal kick occurs when the attacking team kicks the ball beyond the goal line. The attackers are granted a corner kick if the defending team kicks it behind their own line.

The ability to take the ball away from the players’ feet is known as tackling. When tackling, it’s crucial that you make contact with the ball. It is a foul if you make contact with the player rather than the ball. When tackling, be careful not to lunge with both feet in the air, as this can injure another player. If you elbow, tug on the player’s jersey, or shove them, you’ll be called for a foul.

A goal kick must be taken on the 6-yard box’s edge, however it can be taken by a defender or the goalkeeper. The attacking team takes a corner kick, which involves placing the ball in a small quarter-circle in a corner.

There are many different types of fouls, but here are a few to avoid. Dangerous Obstacles: A referee may award a free kick even if you don’t make contact with anyone.

Handball allows you to touch the ball with your feet, head, chest, thighs, and even shoulder, but not your arm. Diving/Simulation: If you pretend to be fouled, the referee has the right to award you a free kick.

Offside: This is not a foul that will result in a booking, but it will result in a free kick for the other team. Physical violence: The referee has the authority to penalise anyone who starts or participates in a fight (even if they did not start it).

Foul throw: Another non-bookable foul that is quite easy to avoid. When throwing the ball in from the sidelines, keep the ball behind your head until you are ready to toss it.
