Midfielder
A MIDFIELDER is an association football position . Midfielders are generally positioned on the field between their team's defenders and forwards . Some midfielders play a disciplined defensive role, breaking up attacks, and are otherwise known as defensive midfielders. Others blur the boundaries, being more mobile and efficient in passing: they are commonly referred to as deep-lying midfielders, play-makers, box-to-box, or holding midfielders. The number of midfielders on a team and their assigned roles depends on the team's formation ; the collective group of these players on the field is sometimes referred to as the MIDFIELD. Most managers assign at least one midfielder to disrupt the opposing team's attacks, while others may be tasked with creating goals, or have equal responsibilities between attack and defence. Midfielders are the players who typically travel the greatest distance during a match

Shooting (association Football)
Shooting is easily the most common way for goals to be scored . It is done using the feet; using the head, i.e. heading the ball, is the second most common way in which goals are scored. TYPES OF SHOTS * Instep drive: This shot is done with the laces of a boot and is widely used. The ball is struck through with the laces or the top part of the foot. The shot is powerful but less accurate. * Swerve shot : This shot is made using the side of the foot (or the outside of the foot on occasion) and is usually but not exclusively used in free kicks . The ball bends or swerves in such a way that it beats the keeper, the only drawback is that it lacks great power

Penalty Area
The PENALTY AREA or 18-YARD BOX (also known less formally as "the penalty box" or simply "the box") is an area of an association football pitch . It is rectangular and extends 16.5m (18 yd) to each side of the goal and 16.5m (18 yd) in front of it. Within the penalty area is the penalty spot (or penalty mark), which is 11 metres (36 ft) or 12 yards from the goal line, directly in-line with the centre of the goal. A penalty arc adjoins the penalty area, and encloses the area within 9.15m (10 yd) from the penalty spot; it does not form part of the penalty area and is only of relevance during the taking of a penalty kick . Previously, penalty areas extended the width of the field, but were reduced to their current dimensions in 1901

Goalkeeper (association Football)
GOALKEEPER, often shortened to KEEPER or GOALIE, is one of the major positions of association football . It is the most specialised position in the sport. The goalkeeper's primary role is to prevent the opposing team from successfully moving the ball over the defended goal-line (between the posts and under the crossbar). This is accomplished by the goalkeeper moving into the path of the ball and either catching it or directing it away from the vicinity of the goal line. Within the penalty area goalkeepers are able to use their hands, making them (outside throw-ins ) the only players on the field permitted to handle the ball. The only time when a goalkeeper is not allowed to use their hands inside their box is when a field player of their own team does a direct pass. The most common way to know that it is a direct pass, and not an indirect pass, is when the field player has control of the ball

Passing (association Football)
PASSING the ball is a key part of association football . The purpose of passing is to keep possession of the ball by maneuvering it on the ground between different players and to advance it up the playing field. This brings an advantage in that the team secures possession of the ball, without allowing the opposition an opportunity to attack. The skill of dribbling the ball is seen much less in modern football matches than in the first half of the twentieth century. This observation is often noted with regret by fans of the game who were familiar with older styles
