The game of football is one of the most popular sports today. But before the likes of Pelé, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and David Beckham became synonymous to the game, soccer was played barefoot by Ancient Greeks and Romans as a pastime. In fact, one belief is that the game was called such because it is played “on foot”. It is also widely believed that football got its name from the action of kicking a ball with the foot. Whatever the real origin of its name, football has gone a long way from just being a way to while away the time.
The earliest record of soccer being played as a competitive sport was during the third and second centuries BC. The Chinese during the Han dynasty, particularly those in the military played a game that used a leather ball and a silk cloth tied to bamboo canes. The goal of this game was to kick the ball into a hole in the middle of the silk cloth. This military exercise and game was adapted from the ancient Chinese ball game called cuju. The Japanese of yore also had their version of the game. Theirs, called kemari, involved kicking and passing a ball within a group of players arranged in a circle. The main objective was simply not to drop the ball.
