Soccer, it is one of the most popular sports around the world, and it just happens to be my favorite too. Soccer has four positions that are played. The offensive position is called the striker or forward, its main job is to try on score on the other team’s goalie. The next set of players are called the midfielders and they are separated into two groups the outside wings and center midfielders, and they’re job is to help out wherever it is needed. Defense is split into three groups; there is the stopper and they play kind of with the offense and defense, then there is the sweeper and they get all of the balls that get past the front line a defense, the two outside defenders are called what the position is outside defenders and they are part of the front line trying to stop the balls at first. And the final position of soccer is my personal favorite the keeper or more times than not known as the goalie. The goalie has the most important job I think and it is to keep the opponent’s from getting the soccer ball into their goal. The most important skill you can have is dribbling while you’re playing soccer. Dribbling is key to moving the ball up the field. Soccer is played normally in two forty minute halves with three referees, two outside refs and the main one.
