Ultimate Quiz On Soccer (Football) - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    To shoot the ball, players should point their toes to the ground and kick the ball with the laces. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To shoot the ball effectively, players should point their toes to the ground and kick the ball with the laces. This technique allows for greater power and accuracy in the shot. By pointing their toes downward, players can generate more force and ensure a clean strike on the ball. Kicking with the laces, the area on the top of the foot where the shoelaces are, provides a larger surface area to make contact with the ball, resulting in a more controlled shot. Therefore, the statement is true.

    If an offensive player is fouled in the box, the result is a _________kick. 

    • A.

      Corner

    • B.

      Direct

    • C.

      Indirect

    • D.

      Penalty

    Correct Answer
    D. Penalty
    Explanation
    When an offensive player is fouled in the box, the result is a penalty kick. A penalty kick is awarded to the offensive team as a direct free kick from the penalty spot, which is located 12 yards away from the goal line. This gives the offensive team a clear scoring opportunity as they have an unobstructed shot at the goal, with only the goalkeeper allowed to defend it.

    Rate this question:

  • 3.

      Inside

    • D.

      Bottom

    • E.

      Toe

    Correct Answer
    C. Inside
    Explanation
    The best part of the foot to pass with is the inside. Passing with the inside of the foot allows for more control and accuracy, as it provides a larger surface area to make contact with the ball. This technique is commonly used in soccer to deliver accurate and controlled passes to teammates.

  • 4. 

    A penalty kick is taken _____________ yards away from the goal line.

    • A.

      5 Yards

    • B.

      12 Yards

    • C.

      27 Yards

    • D.

      45 1/2 Yards

    Correct Answer
    B. 12 Yards
    Explanation
    A penalty kick is taken 12 yards away from the goal line. This distance is standardized and followed in most football competitions. It provides a fair and challenging opportunity for the attacking team to score a goal, while also giving the goalkeeper a reasonable chance to defend the shot. The 12-yard distance is considered optimal for maintaining the balance between the attacking and defending sides during a penalty kick.

    According to FIFA, a player that receives a _________ card is ejected from the game. 

    • A.

      Green

    • B.

      Yellow

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    C. Red
    Explanation
    According to FIFA, a player that receives a red card is ejected from the game. The red card is given as a punishment for serious offenses such as violent conduct, deliberate handball, or denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity. When a player receives a red card, they are immediately sent off the field and their team must continue playing with one less player for the remainder of the match.

  • 6. 

    When tossing the ball inbounds:

    • A.

      Wait for the referee to tell you to throw it.

    • B.

      Be sure you don't go over the line.

    • C.

      Hug the ball first.

    • D.

      Don't bring the ball over your head.

    Correct Answer
    B. Be sure you don't go over the line.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer states that when tossing the ball inbounds, one should be sure not to go over the line. This means that when throwing the ball back into play, it is important to ensure that the throw does not cross or go beyond the boundary line. This is a crucial rule in sports like basketball, where going over the line can result in a turnover or loss of possession for the team. By following this instruction, the player can maintain the fairness and integrity of the game.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Defenders should:

    • A.

      Kick the ball as high as they can.

    • B.

      Try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle.

    • C.

      Try to get the ball to the middle.

    • D.

      Use their hands whenever they can.

    Correct Answer
    B. Try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle.
    Explanation
    Defenders should try to kick the ball to the outside instead of the middle because this strategy helps in preventing the opposing team from advancing towards the goal. By kicking the ball to the outside, defenders can force the attacking players to move away from the center of the field, reducing their chances of creating scoring opportunities. It also allows the defenders to maintain a better defensive shape and control the direction of play, making it harder for the opposition to penetrate their defense.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    On offense,

    • A.

      You can never, ever go in the big box around the goal (the penalty box).

    • B.

      You should always run to get the ball inbounds.

    • C.

      You should always try to get the ball to the sides.

    • D.

      You can use your arms and hands to keep the defender away as long as you're not shoving or elbowing.

    Correct Answer
    D. You can use your arms and hands to keep the defender away as long as you're not shoving or elbowing.
    Explanation
    The answer states that on offense, players are allowed to use their arms and hands to keep the defender away, as long as they are not engaging in illegal actions such as shoving or elbowing. This implies that players can use their upper body strength and positioning to create space and protect the ball from the defender, without resorting to aggressive or dangerous physical contact.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When you're on the field and a teammate is trying to throw the ball inbounds,

    • A.

      You should stand still so they can get it to you.

    • B.

      You should run inbounds and out of bounds.

    • C.

      You should run and move in a triangle.

    • D.

      You should scream, "Look a snake," to trick defenders.

    Correct Answer
    C. You should run and move in a triangle.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You should run and move in a triangle." When a teammate is trying to throw the ball inbounds, standing still may make it easier for defenders to intercept the ball. Running inbounds and out of bounds may confuse the teammate and disrupt the play. However, running and moving in a triangle creates space and options for the teammate to pass the ball to you safely. This strategy allows for better coordination and increases the chances of successfully completing the play.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If the other team is trying to throw the ball inbounds and you're defending, you should:

    • A.

      Stand still.

    • B.

      Make sure you let them get the ball inbounds so that you don't get called for a foul.

    • C.

      "Mark someone," which means that you should make sure you're covering someone.

    • D.

      Scream, "Your shoe is untied."

    Correct Answer
    C. "Mark someone," which means that you should make sure you're covering someone.
    Explanation
    When the other team is trying to throw the ball inbounds and you're defending, the correct action is to "mark someone," which means that you should make sure you're covering someone. This is important because if you don't mark someone, the opponent may have an open player to pass to, potentially leading to an easy score for their team. By marking someone, you can disrupt their play and make it more difficult for them to make successful passes or shots.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When trying to take the ball away from someone, a defender should:

    • A.

      Be sure not to make contact; otherwise they'll be called for a foul.

    • B.

      Can only make contact with their feet and only if they're trying to kick the ball.

    • C.

      Make body contact whenever necessary.

    • D.

      Ask for the ball nicely "Please can I have the ball"

    Correct Answer
    C. Make body contact whenever necessary.
    Explanation
    A defender should make body contact whenever necessary in order to effectively take the ball away from the opponent. This allows the defender to physically challenge the opponent and disrupt their control of the ball. However, it is important for the defender to do so within the rules of the game and avoid committing fouls.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Anytime the ball is in the air, a player should:

    • A.

      Wait until it lands before getting to it.

    • B.

      Wait until it bounces twice before getting to it.

    • C.

      Get to it as soon as possible and use their body, if necessary, to control it.

    • D.

      Get to it as soon as possible but only use their feet to control it.

    Correct Answer
    C. Get to it as soon as possible and use their body, if necessary, to control it.
    Explanation
    When the ball is in the air, the player should try to get to it as soon as possible. This allows them to have more control over the ball and potentially gain an advantage over opponents. Additionally, using their body, if necessary, to control the ball gives the player more options in terms of how they can manipulate the ball and make plays.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    To kick the ball as hard as possible:

    • A.

      Kick with your shoelaces.

    • B.

      Kick with your toes.

    • C.

      Kick with the side of your foot.

    • D.

      Only kick with your left foot.

    Correct Answer
    A. Kick with your shoelaces.
    Explanation
    Kicking with your shoelaces allows for maximum power and accuracy. The shoelaces provide a larger surface area to make contact with the ball, allowing for a stronger impact. This technique also allows the player to generate more force and follow through with their kick, resulting in a more powerful shot.

Therefore, choosing "All the above" encompasses all the qualities that the team aims to have.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    When on offense, players should:

    • A.

      Always aim to be next to the ball.

    • B.

      Always aim to spread out, even if it means some players are getting away from the ball.

    • C.

      Pass only if they like the person they're passing to.

    • D.

      Stand still and wait for the ball to come to you.

    Correct Answer
    B. Always aim to spread out, even if it means some players are getting away from the ball.
    Explanation
    When on offense, players should always aim to spread out, even if it means some players are getting away from the ball. This is because spreading out creates space and opportunities for teammates to pass and move the ball effectively. It also helps to stretch the defense and create openings for players to receive the ball in advantageous positions. Standing still and waiting for the ball to come to you or passing only if you like the person you're passing to can limit the team's options and make it easier for the defense to anticipate and intercept passes.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    At the beginning of the game, when teams line up against each other and ther other team has the ball, a player on our team:

    • A.

      Has to wait until the referee tells them to get the ball.

    • B.

      Should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact.

    • C.

      Has to wait until two opposing players touch the ball.

    • D.

      Has to wait until Coach David or Coach Joe tells them to get the ball.

    Correct Answer
    B. Should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact.
    Explanation
    At the beginning of the game, when the other team has the ball, a player on our team should go after the ball as soon as the other team makes contact. This is because there is no rule or requirement for the player to wait for the referee's signal or for two opposing players to touch the ball. The player can take immediate action and try to gain possession of the ball as soon as the other team makes contact with it.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    From a shot on goal the ball bounces off a goal post to a player who was in a off side postion when the shot was taken 

    • A.

      The player is guilty of off sides

    • B.

      The player is not off sides

    Correct Answer
    A. The player is guilty of off sides
    Explanation
    The player is guilty of offside because according to the offside rule, a player is considered offside if they are nearer to the opponent's goal line than both the ball and the second-to-last defender when the ball is played to them. In this scenario, the player was in an offside position when the shot was taken, and even though the ball bounced off the goal post, it does not reset the offside position. Therefore, the player is still considered offside.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    When is the ball out of play

    • A.

      When it touches any part of the sidelines or goal line

    • B.

      When it goes half way over the sidelines or goal line

    • C.

      When it goes completely over the sidelines or goal line

    Correct Answer
    C. When it goes completely over the sidelines or goal line
    Explanation
    When the ball goes completely over the sidelines or goal line, it is considered out of play. This means that if the ball touches any part of the sidelines or goal line, it is still considered in play. The ball must fully cross the sidelines or goal line for it to be considered out of play.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Can you be offsides on a goal kick

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    According to the Laws of the Game in soccer, a player cannot be offside during a goal kick. Offside is only applicable during active play when a player is involved in the game and in an offside position. During a goal kick, all players except the kicker are typically positioned outside the penalty area, so the offside rule does not apply. Therefore, the correct answer is "No."
