Football they say is a 'god'. A lot of people all over the world and play football. In America, it's called Soccer. It is the most played sport in the world. It's played in homes, schools, communities, and stadia. A football match has eleven players competing for each team. Each team is made up of a goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders, forwards/attackers. Each player is responsible for different roles. While attackers are poised to score goals, defenders are poised to prevent shots from reaching their goal. Although this has been the case on paper, we find defenders and midfielders scoring for their respective teams. That's what football is about "team play".
