I labelled a football pitch to make it a bit easier:[NWA]Ali_G wrote:Alright,explain to me the rules then.
If one team's player have contact with the ball before it goes out of the field on the side, there's a throw-in for the opposite team (the player throws the ball back into the field from the place the ball gone out). If the ball goes out on the top or the bottom of the field (called a goal line) then one of two things happen: 1) Goal kick - If the ball gone out behind your team's goal line after being last touched by opposition player. 2) Corner kick - If the ball goes out behind your team's goal line after being last touched by your team. In case of a goal kick, all the players from the field (that is everyone except the goalkeeper) have to be outside the penalty area and the ball have to be kicked back into play by goalkeeper. In case of a corner, the ball is placed on the corner arc on the side that's closest to where the ball went out, the team is allowed to score directly from the corner kick but it's very difficult and rare for the obvious reasons Ok, now only fouls and offsides left xD So, fouls are basically when a player breaks a rule, there's lots of reasons, but the most common and probably the only one you need to know when you play fifa is a bad tackle. Basically if while tackling you hit the opposition player, that's a foul. If the foul is particularly brutal or puts the other team at disadvantage then it could end in yellow or red card. For example if you slide tackle someone from behind then it's very likely you will get at least a yellow card. You can get red car when you, for example, if you tackle the player when he's coming out one on one with goalkeeper. Of course every tackle is fine as long as you hit the ball, but it doesn't always work in fifa that way >< Offsides happen when one team's player is on the opposite team's half and is in front of the second to last defender in the moment when his team mate is passing to him, even if he leave the offside position before the ball gets to him it's still offside. However, if that player would be behind the ball (so if for example, both him and his team mate that passes to him are both in front of second to last defender then, that's not an offiside. It's probably explained a bit better here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offside_(association_football) (if you scroll down to "application" you can see those two diagrams, they might help)
It might seem a bit confusing but it's really easy once you play a few games.
Sorry it took so long but I get easily distracted while typing long posts ><
Ups, almost forgot to cover penalty kicks,
If a foul occur in the penalty area, instead of a free-kick there's a penalty kick. All players except the defending team's goalkeeper and one attacking team's player that takes the kick must be outside the penalty box, the kick is taken from the 11th meter, on that white dot inside the penalty area (you can see it on the picture on the top)
