What is soccer?

What happens during soccer and how can it be fixed?

A common problem used to be shin injuries. The solution to that problem was to enforce all players to wear shin guards. A shin guard or shin pad is a piece of equipment worn on the front of a player's shin to protect them from injury. These are commonly used in sports including soccer, baseball, ice hockey, field hockey, lacrosse, rugby, and cricket. This is due to either being required by the rules/laws of the sport or worn voluntarily by the participants for protective measures.

Where do you start?

Well to start out you first need to have the correct equipment, that includes a ball, cleats or proper shoes, and shin guards. So if you don’t have a ball you can’t play because you will have nothing to play with, and as far as cleats if you don’t have cleats you will be slipping and falling all over the field. Lastly shin guards if you do not have shin guards and are playing with a league you can not play, shin guards are required for your own safety. After you get all of that stuff, it is important to find a fairly large field to play on, 100-130 yards long and 50-100 yards wide.

What can happen?

If you intentionally foul somebody that will result in a yellow card, then get another penalty or foul you will get a red card and be ejected from the game. Also when you foul a person in the 118 yard line or the goalie box, the person that got fouled will get a penalty kick from the 12 yard line or the penalty spot.  Some ways to get a yellow card are tripping, and using your hands to push. Also you can get an automatic red card by after something happens weather it be a goal or a penalty, if you cause a confrontation you will get a automatic red card.
