Soccer, also known as football in many countries, is a team sport played by two teams of eleven players each. The objective is to score points by kicking the ball into the opponent's goal, using only the feet, legs, torso, and head. Points cannot be scored by using the arms or hands, except by the goalkeeper within their designated penalty area. The game is played on a rectangular field, with a goal at either end. The team with the most goals at the end of the match wins.
Soccer requires a combination of physical skills, such as dribbling, shooting, and endurance, as well as strategic decision-making, teamwork, and tactical awareness.
