Soccer fields will be rectangular in shape with soccer goals at both sides. The basic soccer rules are simple. Soccer game is played
with your feet; if you use your hands the other team gets a free kick or a penalty kick if it occurs near the goal. If a foul occurs accidentally
a free kick is granted to the opposing team, but if the attack was targeted and/or willful, a yellow card is given for misconduct.
Misconduct can be called whether or not the ball is in play.

The winner is decided by measuring his efficiency in preventing the Soccer Ball from entering into the opponents side's Soccer Goals.

Here are a few reasons to stop the clock in a soccer game:

Time is stopped between a goal scored and the next team's kick-off. Any time one team gives up the soccer ball to the other, whether an
out-of-bounds, hand ball or a foul, time is stopped until the other team re-initiates play.
The referee stops time if there is an injured player, interference, or other external interruption. In this case, the referee will drop the ball
from shoulder height in front of two players who will fight for possession.

Some of the terms used in game of Soccer are:

Kick-off: following a goal by the opposing team, or to begin each period of play.

Throw-in: when the ball has wholly crossed the touchline; awarded to opposing team to that which last touched the ball.

Goal kick: when the soccer balls has wholly crossed the goal line without a goal having been scored and having last been touched by a
player of the attacking team; awarded to defending team.

Corner kick: when the ball has wholly crossed the goal line without a goal having been scored and having last been touched by a player
of the defending team; awarded to attacking team.

Indirect free kick: awarded to the opposing team following "non-penal" fouls, certain technical infringements, or when play is stopped to
caution or send-off an opponent without a specific foul having occurred. A goal may not be scored directly from an indirect free kick.

Direct free kick: awarded to fouled team following certain listed "penal" fouls.

Penalty kick: awarded to the fouled team following a foul usually punishable by a direct free kick but that has occurred within their
opponent's penalty area.

Dropped-ball: occurs when the referee has stopped play for any other reason, such as a serious injury to a player, interference by an
external party, or a ball becoming defective. This restart is uncommon in adult games.

There are always competitions held for international and domestic soccer game. The major international competition in soccer is the
World Cup, organized by FIFA. This competition takes place over a four-year period. More than 190 national teams compete in
qualifying tournaments within the scope of continental confederations for a place in the finals. The finals tournament, which is held every
four years, involves 32 national teams competing over a four-week period.

The governing bodies in each country operate league systems in a domestic season, normally comprising several divisions, in which the
teams gain points throughout the season depending on results. Teams are placed into tables, placing them in order according to points
accrued. Most commonly, each team plays every other team in its league at home and away in each season, in a round-robin tourname.
The majority of countries supplement the league system with one or more "cup" competitions. These are organized on a knock-out
basis, the winner of each match proceeding to the next round; the loser takes no further part in the competition.

The rules of football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863, and the name association football was coined to
distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time, specifically rugby football. The term soccer originated in
England, first appearing in the 1880s as a slang abbreviation of the word "association", often credited to former England captain
Charles Wreford-Brown.
