Soccer in Portugal 

    Soccer originated in China during the second and third centuries BC. The growth of modern soccer started in England, in 1863.

Soccer is called football in Portugal. Football was brought to Portugal from a student who returned from England.

Portuguese football is divided into divisions. The major teams play in the Primeira Liga. The other professional teams play against each other in the LigaPro. The other major competitions are the Portuguese Cup, Portuguese League Cup and Portuguese Super Cup. Portugal is also in the Olympics and the FIFA world cup. 

There are the same rules for Portugal soccer as there is for soccer in the US. There are 11 players on the field including the goalie.

Players move the ball by dribbling or passing the ball using any part of their body except their hands and arms. A goal occurs when the ball goes inside the goal posts and under the connecting crossbar.

The game is played within an area that measures between 100 and 130 yards long and between 50 and 100 yards wide. The goal is 24 feet wide and 8 feet high. The penalty area extends 18 yards from the goal and is 44 yards wide. A center line divides the field into two halves

A game lasts 90 minutes. If the game goes into an overtime there is two 15 minute halves. The basic strategy is to keep the other team from scoring.

This is the official Portugal stadium. Located in Lisbon, Portugal. It is a multipurpose stadium called the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Physical fouls, such as tripping or pushing, result in a direct kick. In a direct kick a player can shoot directly on goal if he is close enough. 

Non-physical fouls, such as off sides or obstructing an opponent, result in an indirect kick. The ball must touch a teammate before it can be struck at goal.

The equipment you need to play soccer is only  shinguard,cleats, socks and a soccer ball.  

Soccer has not really changed that much from its origination. At the beginning soccer existed without a single set of rules for years, played in various forms throughout the country (and the world), primarily by the lower class.
