Football is a dynamic sport that demands peak physical performance and exceptional mental acuity on the part of its players. It is a game that is simple in essence but complex in application. At a fundamental level, football is basically a version of Capture the Flag, get to the opponent’s end of the field to win the drive and collect points. A game played by two teams of 11 players each on a rectangular, 100-yard-long field with goal lines and goalposts at either end, the object being to gain possession of a ball and advance it in running or passing plays across the opponent’s goal line or kick it through the air between the opponent’s goalposts. The game itself is most easily categorized into three sections – the offense, defense and kicking. The kicker is called the punter.
Football is related to soccer because they’re both played on a grass field and they both use cleats as explained in my second blog. Also, u can kick the ball in both football and soccer. The differences are that you can use your hands in football but your cant in soccer, it would be a fowl.
