Understanding a simple game

Football is, in essence, a very simple game!


Of such great simplicity that it is capable of being understood, almost intuitively, on a truly global scale. From the regulation, when playing basically without using the upper limbs, to the main objective ... the one that leads the teams to improve in the processes of sports training: win! 


And in this case, the measure of performance is also very simple to be understood: wins the team that scores more goals!


So simple that neither La Palisse would be able to do better...


A goal, whenever the ball regularly exceeds the goal line, between the goalposts and below the beam, is always ... a goal!

Never counts “double”! Neither those goals where the ball enters the goal at more than 100 km / h, neither the ones from a “overhead kick”, nor those from a “heel touch”. And if the result is a draw after 90’, we couldn’t use the number or difficulty of goalkeeper’s spectacular saves to solve this tied match... ...


There is no “artistic note” to be attributed by a “jury,” and its very simple rules remain identical since more than a century and a half when the “football association” was institutionalized. That is why, in its most elementary forms (e.g., in the street football) it does not require any referee to be played.


But, paradoxically, every day this simple game is the subject of many debates and heated discussions, regardless of whether we are in Europe, where it originated, or practically anywhere else in the world.
