Football, also known as soccer in some regions, is a globally popular team sport played between two teams of 11 players each. The objective is to score goals by kicking a ball into the opponent’s goal. Matches consist of two halves, each lasting 45 minutes, with players assigned specific positions on the field. The team with the most goals at the end wins. Football is played on a rectangular field, and scoring occurs when the entire ball crosses the goal line between the goalposts and beneath the crossbar. The sport emphasizes ball movement, passing, and strategic play. Common elements include free kicks, throw-ins, corner kicks, and goal kicks
