Sport of the Week: Soccer

Soccer is a sport played with a spherical ball called a soccer ball. Players must kick the ball to the other team’s goalpost. Then, they get a point. However, the other team tries to get the ball in your goalpost. 1 person from each team is designated as the “goalie”. Only the goalies can touch the ball with their hands. If anyone else does, then somebody from the other team gets to try to kick the ball into their goal and nobody’s allowed to stop them. A standard soccer game lasts 90 minutes.

Soccer is played internationally. However, the US is the only country that actually calls it soccer. The rest of the world calls it football. That’s because they don’t play American Football, which I wrote another article about. Anyways, the championship is called the World Cup. I think the winning country gets to drink from it.
