Soccer is an amazing sport that both of us would like to play professional some day. Here is some information we found about soccer.
A soccer ball is used to score points in soccer. In other countries it is called a football. The players kick the ball from one end of the field to the other until one team is able to kick it into the goal.
A goal is where the players are trying to kick the ball. If they do, they get a point. There is also a goalie who stands in front of the goal, trying to keep the ball out.
A soccer field is a grass area where the players can run and kick the ball. Soccer fields are different sizes, but the average size is 100 feet long and 60 feet wide.
In soccer, there is a yellow, red, and blue card. A yellow card is a warning, and a red card is when you hurt someone. If you get a red card, the other team gets possession. If you get a blue card, you are thrown out of the game.
