Football, also called association football or soccer, game in which two teams of 11 players, using any part of their bodies except their hands and arms, try to maneuver the ball into the opposing team’s goal. Only the goalkeeper is permitted to handle the ball and may do so only within the penalty area surrounding the goal. The team that scores more goals wins.
Football is the world’s most popular ball game in numbers of participants and spectators. Simple in its principal rules and essential equipment, the sport can be played almost anywhere, from official football playing fields (pitches) to gymnasiums, streets, school playgrounds, parks, or beaches. Football’s governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), estimated that at the turn of the 21st century there were approximately 250 million football players and over 1.3 billion people “interested” in football; in 2010 a combined television audience of more than 26 billion watched football’s premier tournament, the quadrennial month-long World Cup finals.
By the early 20th century, football had spread across Europe, but it was in need of international organization. A solution was found in 1904, when representatives from the football associations of Belgium, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland founded the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
Although Englishman Daniel Woolfall was elected FIFA president in 1906 and all of the home nations (England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales) were admitted as members by 1911, British football associations were disdainful of the new body. FIFA members accepted British control over the rules of football via the International Board, which had been established by the home nations in 1882. Nevertheless, in 1920 the British associations resigned their FIFA memberships after failing to persuade other members that Germany, Austria, and Hungary should be expelled following World War I. The British associations rejoined FIFA in 1924 but soon after insisted upon a very rigid definition of amateurism, notably for Olympic football. Other nations again failed to follow their lead, and the British resigned once more in 1928, remaining outside FIFA until 1946. When FIFA established the World Cup championship, British insouciance toward the international game continued. Without membership in FIFA, the British national teams were not invited to the first three competitions (1930, 1934, and 1938). For the next competition, held in 1950, FIFA ruled that the two best finishers in the British home nations tournament would qualify for World Cup play; England won, but Scotland (which finished second) chose not to compete for the World Cup.
It was another wild weekend in the Premier League as Liverpool were thrashed by Aston Villa and Manchester United were hit for six by Tottenham – and that was just Sunday evening.
Elsewhere Chelsea and Everton both scored four with the latter securing their place at the top of the tree over the international break. Newcastle beat Burnley, West Ham stunned Leicester and Leeds earned a hard-fought point in a thrilling duel with Manchester City.
Another bagful of goals meant an array of fantasy football scores, with plenty of top players like Kevin De Bruyne failing to make their mark, while others like Son Heung-min produced big hauls despite being sold by FPL managers in droves during the week.
Alex McCarthy, Southampton – 11 points: McCarthy kept a clean sheet against West Brom and also made three saves, which earned him a saves point and two bonuses.
Ben Chilwell, Chelsea – 18 points: A dream Premier League debut for Chilwell who may never rack up as many points in a single gameweek again. He scored Chelsea’s opener and assisted too, adding a clean sheet and maximum bonus points to collect a huge haul.
Aaron Cresswell, West Ham – 15 points: Owned by less than 2% of fantasy managers, the left-back produced a sublime display down the left flank making two assists and a clean sheet to collect all three bonus points.
Kurt Zouma, Chelsea – 13 points: A goal, a clean sheet and a bonus point saw Zouma join teammate Chilwell in the team of the week.
Jorginho, Chelsea – 15 points: Another Chelsea player who performed well, scoring twice from the spot to rack up 15 points.
Son Heung-min, Tottenham – 18 points: Sold by so many during the week following his hamstring injury last weekend, Son rewarded those patient enough to stick with him by scoring two and assisting one in a destruction of Manchester United.
James Rodriguez, Everton – 18 points: The Colombian continued his impressive start to life in the Premier League, scoring twice and getting one assist to collect exactly the same haul as Son.
Jack Grealish, Aston Villa – 24 points: A sublime performance by the Villa captain set his side on their way to thrashing Liverpool 7-2. Grealish was involved in most of the goals in some way or another, scoring twice and assisting three times in the victory.
Harry Kane, Tottenham – 16 points: Another impressive showing from Kane who scored twice and collected an assist too for that first Son goal.
Callum Wilson, Newcastle – 16 points: Two goals and an assist for Wilson as Newcastle hammered Burnley.
Ollie Watkins, Aston Villa – 19 points: A sensational hat-trick against the champions was some way to open his Villa account. One to watch.
