Summary

Soccer, also known as football in many countries, is the most popular sport in the world. It is played by more than 250 million people in over 200 countries, making it a universal language that transcends cultural and linguistic barriers.

Players must have good ball control, dribbling skills, passing accuracy, and shooting ability. They must also possess speed, agility, endurance, and strength.
