Understand the Object of the Game
You win a football game by scoring more goals than your opponent. A goal is scored when the entire ball on the opposing goal line in the net goes round.
Goalies, when in their own penalty area, are the only players in the field (also called pitch) who can use their arms or hands. All other players can use any part of their body except their arms and hands.
A rule game (also called a match) is usually 90 minutes long and consists of 2 halves of 45 minutes each.
Recognize the positions in football. There are 11 players (per team) on the field to start the game. Although the positions can be rearranged, as the coach sees fit, there are usually 4 defenders, 4 midfielders, 2 strikers and 1 goalkeeper.
Defenders usually stay behind the midfield line to prevent the other team scoring points. They need to make good outlet (clearing) passes and are usually physically taller than other players.
They usually orchestrate the attack and have to be good at holding on to the ball and over.
Striker / striker get the most cracks in ball shooting. You need to be fast, agile and able to shoot with force and accuracy within seconds. They are often the fastest players in the field.
The goalkeeper protects the 18-yard penalty area and is the only player who can use his hands (but only in his own penalty area). The goalie must be agile, flexible, quick to anticipate and be good at communication.
Note that kickoffs begin the game and start the second half. At the time of the kick-off, the players of each team must be completely on their own half of the field and the opponent must not be within the center circle, as the 10-yard mandatory distance on reboot. Once the whistle is blown and the ball has kicked, the laws allow it to go backwards or forwards, allowing players to move freely into both halves of the game.
A team starts the game by winning the Coin Throw to choose a side that gets opposing team to start. The teams change sides at halftime, and the team that has not competed does so in the second half.
Learn when and how to do man-submissions. Throwing happens when the ball goes completely over 1 of the 2 touchlines. Ownership goes to the team that was not the last to touch it. This team gets the ball to throw from the spot where it went out of line.
A player who throws can get a running pass, but has to make the throw correctly.
A player must bring the ball with both hands behind the head up and let the ball with both hands over the head.
A player can not lift any of his feet completely off the ground while he is throwing the ball, although players usually draw 1 foot (0.30 m) while letting go of the ball.
The Difference Between a Corner Kick
Recognize the difference between a corner kick and a shot on goal. If the ball goes over the goal line (but not into the goal) and was last touched by the defending team, the ball goes to the next goal line corner and becomes a corner kick, whereby the possession goes to the attacking team.
If the ball goes over the goal line (but not into the goal) and was last touched by the attacking team, a kick is made, with ownership goes to the defending team. The keeper often takes a shot on goal, but each of the 11 players can. With every free-kick from the 6-yard goal area, the defenders can place the ball anywhere in the area. The ball is only in play when he completely leaves the 18-yard PA (penalty area).
Recognize when a player is offside. Offside is one of the most important rules in football, and it’s designed to prevent football teams from picking cherries or wrapping the 18-yard penalty area with players. A player is determined to be in an offside position if all scores: – at the time the team touches the ball: you are ahead of the ball, in the opponent’s half and closer to the opponent’s goal line than the penultimate opponent (note that the keeper b ut 1 of 11 opponents, although he is often one of the last two defenders, this is not always the case).
Possession is given to the other team if a player restricted due to his offside position is involved in an active game in which the referee awards an INDFK (indirect free kick) from where the stake takes place, also within his own player. half of the field.
Direct Free Kick and an Indirect Free Kick
Identify the difference between a direct free kick and an indirect free kick. A direct free-kick is when you kick the ball directly into the goal for a score without the ball touching another player first. An indirect free kick must be touched by another player before being counted as a goal.
Direct free kicks are usually granted on the basis of a contact kick or a handball from the other team. Indirect free kicks are granted by the referee on account of other violations or interruptions in the game.
In an indirect free kick, the referee holds up one arm until the ball is touched by a second player.
