The Gear

There’s quite a lot of gear for football.


Famous players

The world's best player is Lionel Messi Messi plays for FC Barcelona and is from Argentina celebrates after scoring a goal.

 


Nike vs Adidas

Nike and Adidas are two really popular sports companies but I think that for football Adidas has got the upper hand if they were in a competition.


Teams

For football there's lots and lots of teams, teams that come from all over the world. There are countries and clubs that can be for a city or a town and most countries have lots of clubs but they only usually just have one league. Sometimes countries have two or three leagues but that’s quite rare. I’m not surprised about all those teams because football is the world's most popular sport and there's over 200 countries that play football.


Balls,Goals,Outs and Skills

Skills - For football, if you're an attacker then I would recommend learning some skills. For football there are countless skills from Rainbow Flicks -

 

                     

There’s generations of skills. Football legends such as … Ronaldhino, Messi, Ronaldo and lots of other players have been inventing lots and lots of skills.

Footballs - for football the most important thing is a ball. In China, the first soccer balls were made from sewn clothing that was filled with rubble. In Europe during the Middle Ages, soccer balls were made from inflated pig bladders.

Today most of the balls are made from layers of synthetic leather while the bladders inside the ball are made from latex or butyl.

Outs - for football outs are very important corners. Corners are taken when a team puts it out on the corner mark on their own side then the opposition team gets to take a corner.


The 90 minute rule - the 90 minute rule is important. It’s how the final score is made and half time is always at 45 minutes.


Cards

In professional football cards are tough. There’s yellow cards and red cards. A yellow card is a warning for slide-tackling someone or hurting them. A red card is usually when people break somebody’s bones or even nearly kill them. Most of the time if people do that they get sent-off.


Fifa gaming franchise

Every year around september Fifa always bring out a new video game and this year (2015) Fifa 16 comes out.

   

They are making lots of new features like when you slide-tackle you can get up straight away and they are adding women's teams to the game so you can play better this year with an upgraded game. So who's going to play it? So who is going to pre-order it? If you're reading this after the games come out then I’ll just assume that if you're reading this book you might have Fifa sixteen (16). But if you don’t keep reading.


Training 

For football training is how every player get’s good at the sport and for training, drills are the key to getting good at football.

Tactics

Tactics are when teams huddle and decide what their going to do before a match. Lots of teams have different tactics, pretty much every team has different tactics.
