    Anybody have a soccer ball in the house?

    I am going to Eng paper piece a soccer ball in school colors for my dgd birthday. I'm worried I might not have enough material for all the lt colored hexagon shapes. I would really appreciate it if somebody could count the number of hexagons and the number of pentagons on a soccer ball. I downloaded a pic off the net but can't really tell the total number of each shape in the ball. Thank you so much for any help.

    I don't have a soccer ball here but according to Wikipedia it's 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons.

    Thanks easypeezy. I have the picture spokanequilter posted and thought there were probably 12 pentagons but couldn't be sure about the hexagons. I never thought about going to the sporting goods store - but I did think about all of you!
