How played: the games are conducted by a referee. He is helped by two linesmen. The goalkeeper can alone touch the ball with hands. The other players cannot touch the ball with hands. The ball is placed at the center of the field before starting the game. The players of each team stand face to face in their respective sides. The referee blows his whistle and the game beggings. Then there goes on attacks and counter-attacks between the teams and continues till at the last moment of the game. Every player tries to pass the ball through the strikers so that a goal can be scored. The strikers also seek the chance to hit the ball the opponent’s goalposts. The game is divided into two equal halves with an interval of ten minutes in between them. The players change their sides at the end of the first half.

They are known as the football legendary in the history of the football world. Besides then, there are a good number of star players in Italy, England, Brazil, Argentina, and Germany. The FIFA world cup is the best of all football entertainments which is held in different countries every four years.

Reason for liking: a man’s liking or disliking for a person or a thing varies from person to person according to his taste aptitude and temperament. It feels a great attraction for the game of football. Football is the most popular game in our country. People from almost all walks of life like enjoying this game. A contesting football match is a much looked for the occasion for them. It is full of thrills and excitements. It thrills not only the players but also the spectators. It thrills not only the players but also the spectators. This is why, of the games, I like football most.
Demerits: there is nothing on earth which is an unmixed blessing. The football game is not also free from dark sides. Too much involvement in the games often makes students averse towards their studies. Sometimes wild excitement among the supporters spoils the joy and thrill of the game. They are seen to get involved in quarrels and even in clashes and start chasing and counter-chasing. Despite that football is by far the most popular and exciting game in the world.
Conclusion: football is indeed an interesting and exciting game. We should do our best to make football more popular and keep its heritage ever burning. To quote the words of the world famous cricketer, Md. Imran Khan,
