Humans from all over the world invented soccer with each cultural participation completing the mosaic of football. England took the mosaic, framed it and nailed it on the wall though.

England invented a game of running around kicking a ball in the mid-19th century (although the Chinese claim to have played a version centuries earlier). They called it “football,” not because the ball is played with the feet, but because the game is played on foot rather than horseback. Soccer in Ancient Times Some suggest that the history of soccer dates back as far as 2500 B.c. During this time, the Greeks, Egyptians, and Chinese all appear to have partaken in games involving a ball and feet. Most of these games included the use of hands, feet, and even sticks to control a ball.
