With the 300mm lens, a monopod may help (unless you have the VR lens...?) __ with the Sports mode, the camera will pick the fastest shutter speed and the best f-stop for the ISO you select. In sunshine, ISO 1000 should be more than enough. Football may give you a hint on where the play or action will be: pass or run. Soccer is a crap shoot; nobody knows where the ball and the herd will go next.
