Do You Know the Rules of Soccer?

Soccer, known as "football" (or some variation thereof) in most other countries, is the world's most popular sport. In the United States, though, it has a different status. It's not popular as a spectator sport, however, it's a staple of P.E. classes and of youth sports leagues, with special popularity among girls. 

Soccer is not unlike hockey, a sport that's big in Canada and the northern United States. It's even more like the sport of rugby, which is its close cousin. All of these are sports whose main point is scoring a goal. But, of course, it's not as simple as that sounds. In soccer, there are rules for getting the ball to and into the goal. First and foremost is which body parts a player can manipulate the ball with (we suspect you know what we're getting at, but won't give it away here). Violating the rules can result in the referee calling a foul, giving a penalty kick to the opposing team. Repeated violations can get a player cautioned, or even ejected from the game. 

The odds are that you've either watched or played soccer, and therefore learned its rules. But how confident are you that you really remember them? Test your knowledge now with our quiz! We promise no matter how you perform, we won't give you a red card!
