In the UK, football was first created in the form that we know now. The male part of the country’s population predominantly plays football, but there are still female teams.
Three football players can be divided into three main types, not counting the goalkeeper – forwards, midfielders and defenders. Eleven players are present on the field at the same time from each team: one goalkeeper and ten players.
Football is a team game and you should not forget about it, so for victory one of the most important factors in the game can be called the collective actions of all team members.
