The most played sport in the world is soccer, and you can also call it football. It is played in most countries of the world. While I certainly don't know how to play cricket and basketball because you need a particular arrangement before you can play these two types of sports, football comes so very easy, and all that you need is a ball, and both teams are good to go. While cricket boasts of 2.5 billion fans all over the world and basketball 820 million fans, the total number of people supporting football activities is about 4 billion, a figure that is way above the ones gotten for other sports.
A football match usually lasts for 90 minutes; 45 minutes for the first half, and another 45 minutes for the second half. An official football match is played by two teams. Each is consisting of 10 players and a keeper. This shows there will be 22 players on the pitch with a referee.
