When taking a large step and planting the non-kicking foot to the side of a ball during soccer what are the principles of force summation used?

Several forces come in to play when kicking a soccer ball. The immediate force may be the velocity of the player as they run to the ball. Another force is the centripetal force of the player's thigh as it rotates at the hip. The third force is the centripetal force of the players lower leg as it rotates at the knee. A forth force is the centripetal force of the player's foot as it rotates at the ankle. The angle at which the foot comes into contact with the ball will depend the angle of flight. For example, the lower the point of contact, the higher the trajectory of the ball.

Can you tackle in soccer?

The closest thing to a rugby or football tackle in soccer is a shoulder charge where shoulder to shoulder contact is made. By the rules hip bumps and using arms, hands, or elbows are not permitted though some of this goes on without being called. Also a referee may elect to not call a foul if the team that is the victim of a foul still has possession of the ball especially while executing an attack. The term "tackle" in soccer refers to kicking the ball that is in possession of an opposing player. That player may or may not fall as a result. A successful tackle dispossesses the oppent of the ball by making contact with the ball first. It is still termed a tackle if there is no contact with the opposing player's foot and if the opposing player does not fall. Contact with the opposing player which causes that player to fall is generally permitted if contact is made with the ball first and if the tackle is not from behind the opposing player.
