It is hard to say “Where” and “When” Football (Soccer) was invented because throughout history there have been similar games played by people that might have resembled Football but are not totally alike. It has been said that Ancient Greeks and Romans used to play a game that involved feet and kicking a ball around. Furthermore, earlier version of Football were played as far back as the second century BC by the Chinese. However, in medieval England a new version of the game emerged which became very popular with rules and regulations. Therefore, The English are credited for inventing the game, Football, as we know it today with uniform rules such as forbidding to trip opponents, penalty kick, red and yellow cards, etc.
