Soccer is a sport where the ball is moved around using only the feet.
More Details:

In soccer, moving the ball across the field is called dribbling, and to dribble the ball, you angle your foot outward so that the ball touches the arch of your foot and you kick it downfield that way.  This makes the ball travel short distances and stay on the ground.  This is also how you pass the ball to a teammate.  The players on the field are not allowed to touch the ball with their hands.

To kick a goal or to send the ball downfield longer distances, you angle your foot down so your toes and leg are in a straight line and kick the ball with the laces of your shoe.  This gives you more power in the kick and sends the ball downfield much farther.

The goalie is the only one allowed to touch the ball with his or her hands as long as he or she remains in the goalie box.
