Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played amid two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. At the turn of the 21st century, the game was played by over 250 million players in over 200 countries, making it the world’s most general sport.[1][2][3][4]

The game is played on a rectangular field of grass or green artificial turf, with a goal in the middle of each of the short ends. The object of the game is to score by driving the ball into the opposing goal. In frequent play, the goalkeepers are the only players permitted to touch the ball with their hands or arms, while the field players quintessentially use their feet to kick the ball into position, most times using their torso or head to intercept a ball in midair. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/or a penalty shootout, depending on the format of the competition.

The Laws of the Game were in the first place codified in England by the Football Association in 1863 and have evolved since then. Association football is governed globally by FIFA, which organises the FIFA World Cup each four years.[5]
