Football is a team sport that is particularly popular in Europe, where star players earn millions of dollars per year. In football matches teams coordinate to position themselves just right to get the ball into the goal, and score without interference from the opposing team. Each team is made up of 11 players, usually with assigned positions on the field and specific roles within the team. A defensive player has to intercept attacks of the opposing team, an offensive player has to try and score goals for their team and a mid-fielder helps get the ball from one end of the field to the other. The goalkeeper is the last line of defense in stopping the opponents from scoring a goal, and they may also use their hands for that. International football events like the FIFA World Cup draw huge crowds eager to watch their national team square off against that of another nation. Some famous football clubs are Real Madrid, Bayern München and Manchester United.
In America football is called soccer, since American football refers to a different sport that is only vaguely related to what is known as football everywhere else. American football has two heavily armored teams running into each other, throwing a pill-shaped ball and trying to carry it into the opposing team's end zone. Under certain circumstances they may even attempt to kick the ball (with their feet) into the goal erected at the end of the field. This way justifying the name football for a game that is primarily played by putting the ball into your hands. Some famous American Football teams are the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys.
So plant your feet on the grass, chase after the ball (or the pill) and score points for your team. Only the best athletes and most ferocious players can win, and that better be you! Enjoy our great selection of football games!
