Tackling is when you block the ball with your foot to stop or take it away from the other team. You need to attack the ball and not the other players foot.

winning possesion by tackling

The idea is to seperate the ball from the other player and thus win the possesion of the ball for your team.  Care must be taken not to hit the other player as this will result in a penalty (if you are playing with referees). It is especially important not to injure the other player!
