You can also play with your friends in the street or on the beach. Each team has a goalkeeper(he is the only on o the 11 players that can take he ball with the hands) their job is to stop the ball when the other team tries to score a goal. defenders play in front of the goalkeeper. They are often big and strongbox they must also run fast. The defender's job is to stay closer the striker from the other team and get between them and their goal. Midfielders help both the defenders and the strikers. They are free to run up and down the field. They can make long passes like defenders or run with the ball like strikers. The job of the strikers is to score goals.And sure that football is for everyone but it is divided in leagues from the amateurs to the pro
