The game is split into two halves of 45 minutes each. The first half is called the offensive half, and the second half is known as defense.

At this point, the teams are not allowed to make any more substitutions, and only 11 players are allowed on the field at one time. If more players than 11 are on the field, the team is penalized.

Early modern football began as a school game, and the rules were written down by teachers. The rules allowed schools to play matches. In the 19th century, there were matches between public and private schools. The rules of the game were simple, and most people were familiar with them.

Once both teams have equal number of goals, the game is called a draw. Once a team scores more goals, it is said to have won the game.
