Default Using focus in a sports event

Hi, I'm a newbie with cameras, and I just got myself an Olympus C740. I'm curious to know how I can achieve shots where only the subjects are in focus, and not the background. Manual focus doesn't seem practical at all, so is there anything that can be done to achieve this effect? Oh, and i'm aiming to shoot soccer games =)
