That much time to play anymore but i do love it and when i do have time to play i usually play! Defense usually on the right side that’s my spot so We have the positions first of all when we’re talking about vocabulary for soccer the Defense is well defending Against the other team they’re in the back right in front of the goalie or the Goalkeeper a very important position i was always too scared to be goalkeeper because i just yeah i didn’t Want to have that ball flying at me full speed, oh my, gosh, and i’m not the great of catching it better with My feet so anyway i was a defender you Also, have the midfield in middle of the field and the midfielders will defend he’ll Also sometimes go up with the forwards to help get a goal and the you have the forwards as, well and their Main job is to Score goals or like when i watch soccer with my roommates who are from mexico as They, say on those games go oh oh ball Yeah, i think it’s hilarious, okay? So that is also one difference between american soccer games and the rest of the world when you have football games Is will just be like go Anywhere so sometimes we change the way that, we call the Defense in the field and forwards some people will say fullback Halfback, and striker instead of defense midfield and forward those are the same things, okay? let’s talk about actions during the game so to dribble the ball same as in Basketball is when you’re running up the field with the ball you know Little by little and using different parts of your, books off sides is a Violation when an offensive player is passed the ball, when there are no defensive players between That offensive player and the goal so you Don’t want to be offsides if you’re on the Offense if you’re a forward you don’t want to be offsides because then other team is awarded an indirect kick out of Bounds or you might here i would’ve a this is when the ball goes outside the boundaries of the field of the lines a Quarter kick is a kick from the corner of the field, when the ball goes out of bounds last touched, by a defensive player so the Offensive team is gonna be kicking it from the corner a Goal kick is when the goalie gets to kick the ball because it went out of bounds and it was last touched By an offensive player a Throw-in, is when play is restarted after ball goes out of bounds and the team that throws it in is the Opposite team that made the ball go out of bounds shin guards are required for players to wear to protect Their legs the part of the leg between the ankle, and the knee kickoff, is the way of starting or restarting the game at The beginning of the game halftime after goals been scored or if there’s extra time so if a team commits a violation and the other team Would either get a direct or an indirect kick at that time a Direct kick could be directly kicked into the goal whereas an indirect kick needs to be touched By, another player before a goal is scored, we have red cards and yellow. Cards yellow cards are for unsportsmanlike behavior whereas red cards are for serious violations or violent behavior a penalty kick is awarded to the opposing team Inside the penalty area 12 yards in front of the goal so if other team commits an offense then the opposing team Might get a penalty kick a header is when you use your head to head the ball to Advance or deflect the ball Tackling is an attempt successful or not to take the ball, away from another player Using your feet to pass the ball is pretty basic But to use your foot to send the ball to advance it to another Teammate fifa is the governing international body of soccer and they Established the world cup.
