What is Soccer?

Soccer is a game played by two teams of eleven players with a round ball that may not be touched with the hands or arms during play, except by the goalkeepers. The object of the game is to score goals by kicking, touching it with any part of your body without hands or arms and also heading it into the goal. Soccer includes three referees and two of them on the side are the AR, and they both get to see from side to side what happens, and they always have a flag by them and that's only used if they see something and the Referee doesn't.


Soccer has been such an incredible sport to play. It has been an Olympic sport since the 1900. Soccer is known for Futbol, or even American Football. It is the most popular sport in the world being played more than 200 countries and approximately 250 million people play soccer every year.

Alex Morgan & Lionel Messi.

Alex Morgan and Lionel Messi are professional soccer players. Alex Morgan was born on July 2, 1989 (age 27 years), in San Dimas, CA. She plays for United States women's national soccer team (#13 / Forward), Olympique Lyonnais (Forward). Alex Morgan is such a beautiful woman and always has a smile on her face. Each time there is a game on the TV I make sure to not skip it and watch it. I love watching her play and they way she plays. I wish one day I get to actually see her in person and get to go to one of her camps one day in summer. I also hope that one day I get to become a great soccer player like her. She joined USWNT at the age of 22 and was the youngest on the team. That exact same year the team had won the silver. Morgan started at a young age to play soccer, however, she started playing club soccer at the age of 14. Lionel Messi in the other hand was born on June 24, 1987 (age 29 years), in Rosario, Argentina. He plays for FC Barcelona (#10 / Forward), and Argentina national futbol team (Forward). At age 13, he relocated to Spain to join Barcelona, who agreed to pay for his medical treatment. Messi is such an incredible player and hes not a show off as many others that I know. I know other may not like him but these two players are my favorite and will always be.


Are you trying to get somewhere far with any sport? Whether its soccer, basketball, tennis, track, any sport that you like you need to do specific things and make sure to try your hardest. During practice, you know it's just practice but you do realize that as soon as you start to practice everyone looks at you and says on how bad you want it. You do know that there are others out there trying their hardest or not trying their best at all.

Soccer has became my first ever sport that I have played as a young teenager. I started to play when I was 11 yrs old. I started to play club soccer when I was 12. I was not the greatest but I do have my skill and I know that's once thing that I won't lose, unless I stop. Soccer has always been my passion, it's not just a sport its my drug addiction. I have improved a lot and I am glad that I have actually stayed with this sport. Last year as of November 2016, I have tried out for my school basketball team and made Varsity as my freshmen year. I had fell inlove with the game as well. I was upset when it was over because I knew I wasn't going to play. Basketball is great just like Soccer, but I do understand that Soccer is my sport and I can maybe have a chance later in the future. In Soccer, I play different positions, but my main one is Forward. I am #13 for the SV Sounders Soccer Club team. If you have any suggestions on going out to try out for a team or sport I think that Soccer can be a great one. Yes I understand that its plenty of running, but what sport isn't running wise? Soccer is a huge impact in my life and I do hope to go far in life. With the help of my parents and brothers I know that I can reach my goal.
