Football, which is also known as soccer in some countries, is the most popular sport in Europe and in some parts of the world. In Europe almost every man likes to watch football and if not, at least everyone likes to watch derbies. Usually you get a beer and some snacks, call your friends over and watch an important football match.
The bad side of today's football is hooligans who go to football matches just to fight and make riot. Remember that it's always about the love for your team and not about the hate for the opposite team.
That said about professional football, I will tell you more about the type of football you will probably be playing if you are not training for a professional player and that type is recreation.
Just like watching TV with your friends, you can be playing football with them. I suggest the mini football field , which has the handball sized goals or even smaller ones, where you protect your goal with your feet. I prefer the mini football with the regular handball sized goals. It's best for your condition and it's really fun.
Mini football is based on attacking and defending in a short time. You will have to run almost every second of the game, weather you are protecting a player or dribbling the ball. The most essential part of this game is passing, because on mini fields if you are not a professional player or a really good one, chances are you won't be able to go trough three players, so you will have to pass it to your team mate.
Honestly most of your friends or you don't have the capability for a hundred meters football field, so playing on a mini field is your safe bet.
You don't have to spend a lot of money on this sport, in fact you only need a ball and if your friend has it, you can play this sport for free. Of course it's good to have a ball at home so you can practice and have fun kicking it around, also you don't have to depend on your friend if he can't come to a game.
