The Basics Of Soccer

Introduction

Do you want to know how to defend,shoot, and block? Well than this story is for you. My mom started my sister and I early on in soccer. I loved it from the start but my mom knew that my sister wouldn’t stick with it as she liked laying down in the field picking dandelions. Also, the only goal she scored all season was on her own team's goal. Hopefully this article will help you learn the basics of the game of soccer.

Defence

You want to know how to play defence? Well i’ll tell you. First you going to need some shin guards that way if you get kicked in the shin it won’t hurt. Next if the ball is at the other end of the field don’t really run to it because you're on defence. The second the ball passes midfield you need to be ready. Just run straight at the ball but make sure it doesn't go past you closer to the goal.. If it gets past you, you should still run down the ball. When you get the ball back you still may have time to either pass to a teammate further up the field or kick it really hard at the goal.

Offence

I’ll tell you how to play offence, did I mention you need shin guards? You actually need shin guards for every position. While playing offence you don’t just sit back and wait for the ball to come to you. You can go anywhere on the field so why just sit there. You need to run at the ball and take it and then shoot. To get the best chance of scoring kick it as hard as you can or shoot to the side of the goal. to the side of the goal.

Sweeper

I’ll also tell you how to play sweeper. When you're playing sweeper you are both offence and defence. So you just have to remember what I told you for playing both offence and defence. In offence you don’t just sit back and wait for the ball to come to you. You can go anywhere on the field so why just sit there. You need to run at the ball and take it and then shoot. To get the best chance of scoring kick it as hard as you can or shoot to the side of the goal. The second that ball passes midfield you need to be ready. Just run straight at the ball but make sure it doesn't pass you. If it passes you, you should still run at the ball. When you get the ball and you still have time you should either pass to a teammate that is far up or kick it really hard at the goal

I hoped you liked this and I hope you learned at least 1 or 2 things about soccer but this story over.
