Football Glossary 📚⚽️
Every football fan has at least one friend who does not have an idea about football. (I guess it’s even worse when your girlfriend says her favorite team is Cristiano Ronaldo). Next time your friends or girlfriend ask you stupid question about football just show them our glossary list and continue watching the match. We are here to help you not to miss the goal.
Assist: football is not solo game so assist is pass from one player to another that leads to scored goal.
Captain: footballer that has strong influence on his teammates, chosen to lead a team in the match and to participate in the coin toss before the start of the play. He also wears armband.
Corner flag: These are the flags is each of the four corners of the football pitch. Their purpose is to show the boundaries of the playing area.
Corner kick: One of the most happening event in every match. However, many people do not know what actually mean. Well, when the ball passes the goal line last touched by a player of the defending team and a goal is not scored, then a player from the attacking team places the ball in corner area and kicks it.
Defender: One of the main positions in the team. His job is to prevent the opposite team from scoring goal. (The one that kicks Ronaldo and of course we hate him, and we are pointing him to the referee)
Derby: Match between two teams usually located in the same city or are. Example: Arsenal vs Tottenham (North London derby). Photo by Gustavo Ferreira on Unsplash.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that he’s anticipating departures before the European transfer deadline. Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Moussa Dembele have all been linked with a move. Do you think Poch should let any of them go? Comment below!
What is football? ⚽️
For many people football means a lot. I remember few weeks ago I was standing in front of the TV waiting for the match Columbia – England to start, I had such a strange feeling like something important is going to happen in my life. That was the moment when I started questioning myself… What is football? What makes it so special that many people are giving so much money for tickets and are flying sometimes many kilometers just to scream after 22 people on the pitch who are running after one ball? Stated that way it does not make sense, our equation leads me to one conclusion: These people are crazy!
To be honest it’s true that football fans are insane, but that madness comes from the energy that everyone feels when step on the stadium. The energy you can feel in the air has been overlaid with time, with every match. The passion and dedication of every fan and player has left a trace. Everyone been there in any point of their life has left part of their soul.
Well, maybe I don’t know what football is, but for sure it is not only 90-minute race for few goals! Football is much more!
Thanks God football is not math, proof is not needed, we don’t have to know exactly what it is. It’s enough to feel the magic that only football can give us.

Conmebol anunció que final de la Copa Sudamericana 2019 se jugará en Lima
Finalmente Lima acogerá la final de un certamen continental. No será la ansiada Final Única de la Copa Libertadores 2019 como muchos se ilusionaron, sí de la Copa Sudamericana 2019.
En un comunicado de prensa, la Conmebol anunció las dos sedes de las Finales Únicas de sus dos certámenes continentales, que entrarán en vigencia a partir del 2019.
De acuerdo a la Conmebol, las "revisiones y evaluaciones resultaron en un informe detallado con las recomendaciones del equipo de trabajo presentado ante el Consejo de la CONMEBOL, que fue sometido a votación, dando como resultado la selección de la ciudad de Santiago de Chile". Como premio consuelo, a Lima le tocó la Final única de la Copa Sudamericana.
El presidente de la Federación Peruana de Fútbol, Edwin Oviedo, señaló que “es un alto honor está histórica decisión del Consejo de la CONMEBOL por elegir a la ciudad de Lima como sede de la primera Final Única de la CONMEBOL Sudamericana 2019. La FPF estará a la altura de tan importante evento del fútbol sudamericano y mundial. Se trata de un nuevo respaldo a una gestión profesional y transparente en favor del fútbol peruano, tras la histórica clasificación de la selección de Perú al Mundial Rusia 2018, luego de 36 años de ausencia en la máxima competición futbolística”. _________________________________ #Football#Instasport#Footballgame#Footballplayer#Footballsunday#Footballer#Soccerislife#Soccerteam#Training#Sports#Exercise#Instasoccer#Futbol#Footballtime#Footballmatch#Footballers#Footballfan
