The main rules of soccer are played between 11 players from two teams. The team must have 10 field players and 1 goalkeeper who protects the soccer goal with gloves. In soccer, it is important to know the divisions into positions during the game, for example, often 4 players are defenders, where 2 players are central defenders, and two are side fullbacks. Right & left backs protect the left and right flanks on the field, but they also often join in the attack. In addition to defenders, there are also midfielders who help attacking players and defenders. And of course in soccer there are attacking players, wingers, strikers and so on. The players in the attacking positions are responsible for ensuring that the team scores goals. But soccer is a team sport and every one of the 11 players is important in it!

It is a ball that consists of most of the polygons, which are colored black and white. The drawing is quite simple and even an absolute beginner in drawing will draw it. Enjoy drawing!

How to Draw a Soccer Ball
- Draw a shape.
Begin by drawing a basic round ball shape.
- Draw a pentagon.
The soccer ball is made up of pentagons and hexagons with stitchings in between. Draw the first pentagon as in the example.
- Add a pentagon.
Now add a parallel pentagon that should be positioned a little further away from the first pentagon.
- Draw the bottom.
Now, at the bottom of the ball, draw a half pentagon like in the example.
- Add the top.
Finish drawing the pentagons by adding the top one.
- Connect the covers.
Now you need to connect the covers of the ball to form the white parts of the soccer ball. Start doing this on the right side as in the example.
- Complete the sketch.
Now do the same on the left side of the ball. Note that the ball’s white covers are hexagons.
