This Soccer Games Glossary is dedicated to passionate game players and fans that compete, watch this favorite sport and play soccer.
Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and is played passionately in most countries worldwide. The game is played on a rectangular field with net goals at either end. Each team consists of 11 players whose objective is to drive the soccer game ball into the other's goal by kicking, heading, or using any part of the body except the arms and hands. The goalie is the only player permitted to touch or move the ball with arms or hands.
At the end of two periods of play, the team with the most goals is declared the winner. In the case of a tie, a shootout occurs depending on the rules of the league.
