The origin of modern soccer is still not known. Some believe that it was originated in Britain whereas some believe that it has a much older history and the game was originated in China. Here is a brief look into the history of football.
It is said that the game is derived from the Chinese version of “Tsu Chu”, which was played by Chinese army in order to strengthen their teamwork. The players on a field had to hit a ball, which was leather stuffed with fur into a small goal. No hands were allowed during the game play.
