The following conditions take place when a person kicks the football:-

#=>#The foot of the player exerts a force on the ball

#=>#Further the field exerts a force on the ball in upward direction.

#=># Finally it is the work of gravity when it pulls the ball downwards i.e. in the direction opposite to the movement of the ball.
