What is period in soccer?

A set amount of time, usually in reference to one half of extra time in a soccer match which lasts 15 minutes not including added time. Every period (second half, extra time) always starts with a kick-off. Play continues until a long whistle from the referee indicates the match is over, or a penalty shootout will occur, if needed.
