# Keeping the tangential velocity zero in rolling motion down an inclined plane

I know that the direction of friction has been discussed extensively here. However, I am still wondering about a particular issue (applies for slipping and no slipping). Consider this book: https://openstax.org/books/university-physics-volume-1/pages/11-1-rolling-motion

From my understanding, the component of weight of the wheel acting parallel to the surface is accelerating the wheel down (it is unbalanced). A frictional force opposes the direction of the motion, creating a torque, which results in an angular acceleration.

My question is: if the point of contact between the wheel and the surface is zero, shouldn't the free-body diagram show another friction in the direction of motion or how can I imagine the velocity at the point of contact to become zero?

This also applies to rolling with slipping: should there not be a part of friction opposing the tangential velocity at the point of contact (even though it is insufficient to prevent slipping)?

$$\dots$$ how can I imagine the velocity at the point of contact to become zero?
