My Corner Kick Was Awesome! What the...?!

Corner Kicks cannot bend out of bounds and then back into play.   The ball must stay in the field of play even in the air or a goal kick is awarded to the other team.

Own Goal = Corner Kick?

posted Jan 11, 2013, 8:15 AM by RCR Webmaster

According to the laws of the game, if a player puts the ball into their own goal directly from a restart of play (e.g. free kicks, corner kicks, goal kicks etc.) without the ball being touched by any other player, a corner kick is awarded to the other team and not an "own goal" which it would appear to be. Such incidents are extremely rare.

I've been What megged?

The soccer term nutmeg arose because of a practice used in nutmeg exports between America and England. Nutmegs were such a valuable commodity that unscrupulous exporters would mix a helping of wooden replicas into the sacks being shipped to England.   Being nutmegged soon came to imply stupidity on the part of the duped victim and cleverness on the part of the trickster.  It soon caught on in soccer, implying that the player whose legs the ball had been played through had been tricked, or, nutmegged.

Fut What?

posted Oct 29, 2012, 1:46 PM by RCR Webmaster

Futsal is a game that develops individual close ball skills through an increased number of touches during the game. Players are placed in reduced space situations and are constantly forced to make decisions demanding speed of thought and quick reflexes. On average a player will touch the ball twelve times more than in 11-a-side football.

Did you know that the keeper can dribble the ball into box to pick it up?  Of course the ball cannot have been passed to him/her from the foot of a teammate.
