Soccer is a sport that truly belongs to the world. No other sport inspires the passionate following, large crowds and worldwide popularity that soccer does. The game is called Futbol in most of the world. Inexplicably, soccer’s requirements of skillful play with the ball, physical demands, and teamwork make it a hard game to resist appreciating. The game's fluid play—action stoppages are rare—and creative nature makes soccer one part sport, one part craft, and one part art.
