History of Football

Every day, I must move from place to another place because I require sweat. I hope, I can keep my healthy. I can do anything & I pick Sepak Bola as my sport.

What would you guess is the most popular team sport in the world? Baseball? Basketball or footy? No way. The answer is soccer, a sport played in every country in the world. It doesnt have lots of rules or demand much equipment. All you require is an open space & a ball.

The sport is called soccer in the United States & Canada. But in lots of countries it is called footy, the name Americans give to an entirely different game. In Spanish-speaking countries, where the game is popular, the name is fobol.

The World Cup is an international soccer match held every years. There is World Cup match for men & another for ladies. The World Cup for men is the most popular sporting event in the world. Over a billion people around the globe watch the men World Cup on tv. The 1994 men World Cup took place in the United States, as did the 1999 women World Cup. Both tournaments helped increase the popularity of soccer in the United States.
