The origin of football is very vague, peerhaps it started in prehistoric times with cavemen kicking a pebble or such, this is something we will never probably know. There are written histories, archaeological finds and artworks from China and Japan to Egypt, Greece, Rome, Australia and the Americas, in regard to the more structured game of football. The name football has been used for centuries while the name soccer is a much more recent invention. But the roots lie deep in our primeval past.
