What is Stoppage Time?
A professional soccer game lasts 90 minutes, split into two 45-minute halves. The team with the most goals at 90 minutes wins the game, however there is something called 'stoppage time' that comes into play at the end of regular time. Unlike many other sports, games are timed on a running clock. At the end of each half, the referee will add on stoppage time to play, which is roughly estimated to account for delays in play during that half.
What are the Different Positions
There are 11 players per team on field at any given time, with four classes into which those 11 players are divided. There are goalkeepers - the only players allowed to touch the ball with their hands, defenders, midfielders, and strikers - also known as forwards or attackers. Different formations or combinations of these players are allowed on field, and these formations can change throughout game play.
