MEN'S FOOTBALL

hello, we are the essex blades MEN'S FOOTBALL club


Football (or soccer) is a team sport played between 2 teams of 11 players and is one of the world's most popular sports. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal, and the team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins.
