Football is a word that’s perplexing and entertaining and a game which epitomized the pride of a country and the strength of an athlete. In other areas, football is a sport called soccer in the us. Football in the US is where the quarterback throws the ball into a receiver and everyone is running around the gridiron. And football in Europe and other areas of the world means football, where men run around the field tossing a ball around their knees and mind. Whew! That was confusing. So who really invented soccer?
The”Father of American Football”, Walter C. Camp was a soccer coach and a sports writer and the person who invented football. His title became is legend at the American Football background. He took the rugby game to another level and invented soccer. He borrowed term in the rugby game and employed it to soccer; in rugby, five men lined-up and are called scrum; in soccer, he alter the five men to seven men forming the offensive line, this is known as the Line of Scrimmage. Get it? Scrum and scrimmage?
Some asserts the football is really a Canadian game and it was a Canadian who invented soccer. Invented by the replacement for British troops entering Quebec from the 1600’s. Canadian Faculties then introduced the game to American Colleges. It’s stated that by the time America first heard of soccer, Canada currently has their professional soccer league of sorts.
Some say that football was invented by Chinese a million years back. The ancient Chinese were said to have kick a ball back and forth for amusement and exercise. It is said that the English only re-invented the game after explorers seen this far away land. So was it actually the Chinese who invented soccer?
They say it all began in Rome. Romans started playing soccer quite differently at the moment, it’s said that they throw and throw the pig’s head around staking a claim on it. They found it engaging and fun thus it became a game and so it was them who invented soccer.
It was the English who invented the football, or did they? It’s been reported that forms of soccer were played as early as 1200 in England. As evidence, they pointed out that a match found played in ancient Greece, it’s thought to be the predecessor of soccer. But this game is reported to be forbade by The King Henry VI and from the 19th century, it had been split into two matches; the football and the rugby. And since American football evolved from the rugby, the English are essentially staking a claim on both soccer sports.
