When it comes to playing soccer, many of you must have done it on the backyard of your house or in an improvised field while being out for a picnic, as this type of sporting activity doesn't require too much to be enjoyed in a game.
The easiness in playing is what makes soccer game an exciting sport to play.
But regardless of the easiness of coming up with a soccer game there are however some basic equipment that a soccer player must have especially of he is the one to play in a formal team, and not only the amateur style of a backyard soccer game.
The first thing to consider as basics when it is about soccer gear and equipment is the ball.
The footwear recommended is spiked shoes - the cleats - as these ones can help a soccer player to keep his balance regardless of the type of field he plays on - sand, grass, mud or dirt.
Shin guards are the next on the list even if they are not required for an amateurish soccer play, these ones are perfect to protect the soccer player's legs from getting injured.
The gloves for the goal keeper are of many types and fabrics, and while choosing the perfect ones make sure that they have a better grip on the soccer ball protecting at the same time the joints and the fingers which are so important to be safe in the goal keeper position.
The goalposts can be another basic item when it comes to more demanding style of soccer playing.
When it comes to the uniform, a cotton jersey, shorts (the usual chosen type being knee-length), high socks made of thick texture to protect the calves and the legs are to be preferred.
