Football (also known as soccer) is an Earth team sport.

The object of the game is for one team to score more goals than the other team by kicking a ball into a net in the opposing team's area. Each team consists of eleven players, most of who cannot use their hands to advance the ball. Only the goal keeper can use his or her hands in defending the goal within a predefined area. The team gaining the highest amount of points within the allotted time frame wins the game.
