Soccer such as their position on the field.

Soccer is a way of life to millions and billions of people. It is considered one of the most popular and famous team sport, including both men and women. It involves two teams consisting of eleven players in which each player has a specific position such as a forward, midfielder/attacker, and a defender. Don’t forget about the goalkeeper who saves a vast majority of the goals being scored! All these positions are very important and each have a specialized role. I, myself love the sport with a passion. Over the past years there has been multiple arguments on who the top players are around the world. For a fact it is isn’t always easy to distinguish which is which, because the stats of new players are always getting updated.     As I examined each individual I reviewed their stats and watched some of their short clips. In the following paragraphs I will state each players goals, assists, field leadership, and extra tacticals. The total goals stated will be the overall in total with some exclusions. An assist in soccer is the contribution of a player who helps score a goal. For example, if Mr. Arredondo passed the soccer ball to Mrs. Case, who scored the goal, he has then done an assist. Along assists there are “hat tricks”. When a player scores three consecutive goals without interruptions it is called a hat trick. I will divulge each individuals field leadership such as their position on the field. Defenders or fullbacks, play closest to their own goal and are to stop the other team from scoring. Defenders must be strong and aggressive. They’re not always the best ones to dribble a ball, but need to be capable of clearing a ball when in attack. Midfielders play mostly around the middle of the field. Midfielders usually have both an offensive and defensive responsibility. They need to be able to dribble and pass the ball up to the forwards as well as help to break up the opponent’s attack. To excel at the midfield position a player must be able to transition. Transition is when a player receives a pass from a defender, turns the ball up-field, and then passes the ball to a forward. Other good skills for this position include great ball control, quickness, and the ability to run long distances. Midfielders generally run the most. The last position on the field is the forward. Their main job is to offense and shoot. Although, they do have to defend at times. Forwards are typically fast and good with the ball. Extra tacticals will include facts or technical abilities.    Cristiano Ronaldo is the best male soccer player living. He was born on February 5, 1985, in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. He is currently playing with Real Madrid as a forward. He got signed off with them in 2009, with Real Madrid paying him a record of $131 million for his services. As of January 21, 2018, Ronaldo has scored a total of 626 goals, 203 assists, and 48 hat tricks. 99 of the goals shot were penalties and 21 of them were missed. Cristiano Ronaldo is the fastest soccer player alive and jumps higher than the average NBA basketball player. Ronaldo is capable of reading/judging a ball in the air very well to the point where he can do it in the dark without missing. He is known for his very technical and crazy skills/moves. Overall, Cristiano Ronaldo is scientifically rated and proved the best soccer player.    Right behind Cristiano Ronaldo is Lionel Messi. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are back to back, carrying close records. Lionel Messi was born on June 24, 1987. Messi is an Argentinian soccer player who plays for the FC Barcelona club and the Argentine national team. ” At the age of 13, Messi moved from Argentina to Spain after FC Barcelona agreed to pay for his medical treatments” (biography.com). He plays as a midfielder. In total Lionel Messi has scored 593 goals, made 242 assists, and 44 hat tricks. 77 of those goals were penalties and 23 were missed. Lionel Messi is , ” Known for his agility, balance, timing, and ever-alert style, as well as his quiet and reserved demeanor…” (Newsmakers). Till this day Lionel Messi is so close to reaching Ronaldo’s back.     As for female soccer players, a forward who used to play for the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, Mia Hamm, stands at the top. Although she retired many years ago, “she has inspired countless young girls throughout her career and played a major role in promoting women’s sports in so many ways in so many places, she will leave behind some startling numbers as well, ” (US Soccer). In 2004 she was U.S. Soccer all-time leading scorer with 158 goals, 142 career assists, and eight hat tricks. Mia Hamm has had two four-goal games and 28 two-goal games. “Hamm was the youngest person ever to play for the U.S. National Team when she debuted for the USA in 1987 at the age of 15…” (US Soccer). This is another reason to why she is the best female soccer. Not ever in history has one individual been brought onto the U.S.Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) at such a young age. Just imagine the skills she had. Mia Hamm is a legend.    Despite the fact that Mia Hamm holds a place on the leaderboard of soccer players so does Abby Wambach, another former USWNT striker (forward). In 2015, Abby Wambach lead the USWNT to an Olympic gold and Fifa World Cup Title. She as well became the all-time leader in international goals ever. Abby Wambach once scored 27 goals over three games in a girls’ youth soccer league. She is currently 37 years old and has been touring around the world speaking her journey. At the age of  33, Wambach broke Hamm’s record with 160 goals in 207 games, two more than Hamm had in a storied 275-game career that ended in 2004.Soccer is a way of life to millions and billions of people.
