in many ways physics has a lot to do with soccer. for instance, when cutting while running takes a lot of force. Newton's first and third law of motion apply to this action. Newton's first law is applicable here because you continue moving in that direction until you exert a force(your plant leg) to change it. The third law works here because the force your foot is inflicting on the ground is counteracted with the same force but in the opposite direction by the ground itself.
