    depends on what you want to cover.

    cameras behind goal posts are fitted with 16-35 or 14mm lenses.

    i think 18-55 is relativly short for a soccer game even if u're at the touch line.
    u'll probably need at least 200mm for a decent center of the field shot

    If you are sitting as an audience, a > 200mm lens will be idea.

    All depends on the lighting. If I were you, I'd set to Shutter mode, set a shutter speed of about 1/250 (or 1/500-1/1000s if it's bright daylight) and let the camera adjust the aperture automatically.

    Of course, if you read your camera manual, there's a whole section in there about freezing motion when using shutter speed priority.
