Football, sometimes known as soccer, is the most widely played and watched team sport in the world. Football is a ball game played between two teams of eleven players, each attempting to win by scoring more goals than their opponent. A goal is scored when the ball passes over the goal line between the goalposts and under the crossbar. Football is played mainly with the feet, but players may use any part of their body except their hands and arms to deal with the ball. The goalkeeper is the only member of the team allowed to use his hands to touch the ball in the field of play. Football is played regularly by many millions of people in over 200 countries. Its rules are simple and it requires only simple equipment. Those aspects no doubt explain its popularity. In many parts of the world, particularly in Europe, South America and increasingly in Africa, football arouses great enthusiasm and plays an important role in the life of individual fans, local communities, and even nations.
