Here in the UK soccer, or football as we call it, is the most popular sport.In Europe they call it 'the beautiful game'. I'm sorry the drunks have also invaded it in the US. It is the same here.Playing football requires great fitness, skill, and practice. David Beckham, that you now have in the US, has the most accurate long kick of the ball that I have ever seen. One tip - if you don't learn the offside rule you will never understand it! Deotima.
