Description - Football for Kids by Alberto Bertolazzi
With well over a billion players stretching around the globe from North America to Oceania, soccer is the most widely played sport in the world. The reasons for its success are simple: all that's required to play it is an open space and a ball. This book is an illustrated guide with a simple approach to the sport, aimed at children and young teens. A brief introduction includes facts about the history of football, from its origins to its present state of development. The core of the book covers the principal rules and basic techniques of the game: the dribble, stop, pass, shoot, head shot, defense, and possession of the ball. It defines not only individual moves but also those required by the team as a whole, with a focus on tactics, that is, on behaviour in the field.
