The Rules

The basic rules of football are:

When you tackle you must kick the ball. If you don't kick the ball and you kick the player you are likely to get a yellow card by the referee. If you get another yellow card you get a red card which means you will get sent off the pitch. You can get an instant red card by hurting a player badly but it doesn't happen very often. It's obvious too you are not to touch the ball with your hands. Only if you're the goal-keeper and you`re in the box.
