Football is a sport that people around the world enjoy. Some say that football is the greatest religion in the modern world. Modern football started in England. Let's look at why football started in the UK has become a global sport.

1863 Football Association RulesIt's hard to say that football started in any region. Play can be made everywhere, including inflating the animal's bladder. Young people kicked the ball in the grass or on the street without any rules.
Popular football faces the 19th century crisis. In England, fences have been built on farmland, so there are fewer grasses for kicking, and in the cities, the industrial revolution made it harder to kick the ball. Even when the popularity of football disappeared, the most prestigious private schools such as Charterhouse School and Eaton School were still enjoyed and encouraged.

At the time, I caught the ball and ran. The distinction between football and rugby was not clear, and the way they played was different in each school. When the two schools competed, they were divided into two groups, each playing according to their opponent's rules. Half time came from here. Imagine running a ball with your hand in the first half and not using your hands in the second half. Even after entering college, only students who graduated from the same high school had to compete. In order to solve this problem, the Cambridge University created a "Cambridge rules" in 1848 by compromising the rules of many schools.

In 1863, private school officials and representatives from 12 clubs gathered to form the British Football Association (FA) and create a 13-part football rule. The 13 provisions included most of the rules that apply to football today, including the maximum size of the football field, the size of the goal, and the kickoff regulations. Nevertheless, there were regulations that were very new to me.

For example, "Don't run with a ball" and "Don't wear protruding nails or steel armor." The FA made 13 articles in a booklet and published it under the title of the British Football Association Code of Regulations. Melvin Bragg, one of Britain's leading broadcaster, selected this little booklet as one of "Twelve Books That Changed the World."

○ Popularization of football and birth of ethnic races

After 13 rules were enacted in 1863, 90 minutes of off-time were introduced in 1866 and 1877. After these rules were enacted, the violent play of the injured became a gentleman's sport. Workers in private schools and factories created countless clubs to start the game, and initially private school graduates continued to win.

In 1883, two important things happen in British football. First, the Blackburn Olympic Football Club, made up of workers, wins by winning the Old Etonian FC, which is made up of Eaton School graduates. This is because football has grown beyond the competition between private schools and into a sports of workers.

In the first half of the 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution began in England, workers were unable to enjoy leisure because of long hours of work and poor conditions. In the late nineteenth century, however, the working hours gradually decreased and Saturday morning work settled, and I began to play soccer in my spare time.

Particularly in the northern industrial zones, workers formed numerous teams, and gradually professional players emerged to lead the race. During the 1892-1893 season, 28 clubs ran the league in two divisions. The growth and modernization of British football is closely related to the growth of workers.

Secondly, the British Homecoming, the British Home Championship. Four teams, including England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, had regular matches, which gradually attracted tens of thousands of spectators. England and Scotland, in particular, had regular competitions between national teams every year. The crowd on both sides had been converted to patriots for 90 minutes. “Nationalism” was seen in today's football games. We also become patriots when we play against Japan.

Globalization of football and the birth of the World Cup

Modern football was widespread by British workers who visited England to return to their country or travel abroad. Not only in Europe, but also in Africa and South America, it was spread by British sailors who understood the 13 provisions of the Football Regulations. Football became the official Olympic sport in the 1920s.

In 1930, the World Cup was held in Uruguay with professional players. Uruguay won with 13 countries, but Britain did not. The UK did not feel the need to compete in the World Cup because of the British Home Championship. England first participated in the 1950 World Cup.

The reason why British football has grown into a global sport can be summed up by the 13 rules of football created in 1863, the growth of British workers, the hosting of ethnic races in the UK, and the birth of the World Cup. The rules of football are unified around the world and very simple, but every scene of the game is complex and dynamic, which makes people enthusiastic. At the heart of all of these events is a collection of rules created by the British Football Association in 1863.

[Play with the newspaper! / Click! Interesting history] How did football, which started in England, become a sport for the world?

1. The slave country of football

In general, the dominant country of modern football is England. In Italy, ball playing in Florence in the 14th century is the origin of modern soccer, and soccer is called calcio, which means 'ball kick', and in China, the origin of juju is also claimed. However, FIFA also admitted to the Chinese Axis Cooperatives, and since kicking and kicking something appears in isolated civilizations such as the Inca and Maya, there is no doubt that Chinese rats are the origin of football.

John Fox, an American archaeologist and sports columnist who also appears in baseball / initiatives, said, "The rat that China calls the origin of football was influenced by the country, Kemari (or Shukiku) [1] in Korea and Japan, It shouldn't be affected. "

There are many different opinions about the origin of football, since there has been a culture of play in which people kick something. However, there is no difference in the fact that England is the dominant country of modern football, which is the basis of modern football. In 1863, officials from London football clubs and school football teams met at a pub called Freemason Tavern, which resulted in the Football Association, or FA. It was the world's first football association, and after that, England continued to use the name football associations, not the 'England' football associations, to appeal themselves as the dominant footballers.

The United Kingdom also enacted the rules of football, systematically developed the administrative system to make football a sport, and contributed to the widespread dissemination of football as a modern sport throughout the world. Indeed, it was the English that spread the football to the world, and AC Milan, Real Madrid CF, and the popular national clubs were also in the beginning. In addition, the impact of the UK can be confirmed by the fact that the club names, although not English, often include English. [2]

Because of this, the skills and position of England in the football world are still considerable. Four of the eight members of the IFAB, who are authorized to revise the rules of football, are elected one by one from four UK home nations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). In addition to the four selected by the FIFA, six out of eight persons must agree.

Even the early FIFA World Cup was ignored by the British, saying, "It's not a low quality tournament!", And during the 1950 World Cup, they recognized all four British homenation teams and qualified themselves to qualify for two teams. It could only be brought in by giving humiliating preference. In the 1950 World Cup, however, England was shocked by the semi-professional United States, and both England and Scotland had a poor performance in 1954, which made them unprecedented since the 1958 World Cup. did. However, thanks to the promotion of all four nations to the finals in the 58 World Cup, when the privilege was eliminated, the ticket was increased (…).

2. Early Football

The predecessor of football was said to have existed since the ancient Roman Empire. It was kind of military training. It was called harpastum. The ban appears king even in the Middle Ages. Medieval football is still available today, under the name Calcio Storico Fiorentino in Florence, Italy. If you search on Youtube, you throw a ball and martial arts 1: 1
In England, football was a bloody match rather than a football called Mob Football. It was the rule that the player who brought the ball at the time of the pneumatic pig urine, etc., to the designated point of the opponent's camp won, but there were virtually no other rules, such as no excessive violence or a limit on the number of people. [4]
At that time, soccer was usually played in nearby villages, and because there were no restrictions on the number of people, the majority of the youth in the village were mobilized and even priests such as priests were mobilized. They kicked, beat, bite, pinch, stab, etc., and exchanged all kinds of violence with each other. There were also rules that said the use of bare hands prohibits the use of weapons, but there were not a lot of cases of hiding and wielding weapons. As a result, playing football usually took a few days to the next morning, and once played, deaths and injuries were followed. If you'd like to die in Shakespeare's work, "This guy who plays soccer!" Was there an ambassador? So the word 'footballer' was used as a swear word in old English.

As such a barbaric game, the British ruling class at that time did not look very good at footballers and used to be banned by law, but the popularity of football continued. So football is sometimes called the 'sports of the workers', and in fact, there are a lot of professional soccer players from the common people and the working class.

Occasionally, people like 15th-century Scottish King James IV, 16th-century Pope Leo XIII, and 16th-century French King Henry II [6] liked football, and Charles V of King Habsburg of Spain-Austria was a Aztec in 1528. Invited him to the court to hold a soccer game.

In 1526, King Henry VIII of England, 35, ordered a pair of football shoes for himself, showing that football was not exclusively for the dominant, and that there were football fans among the royal family and nobles of the time. Thus, despite numerous orders from the Middle Ages to the modern age, the popularity of football remained unbroken, and it has come down to a popular sport as it is today.

3. The birth of modern football

Before football, British football was played with different rules in different regions. However, as the interregional competition increased, the need for unification rules emerged. In 1863, an FA was formed with 11 clubs around London, England. The following year, the FA enacted the first set of integration rules, different from today's, such as hand in hand. Since then, FA has continued to grow its affiliated clubs, and in 1871, the first football tournament, the FA Cup, was born, and football became the basis for modern sports.

With the participation of the Scottish, Wales, and Irish cooperatives in Manchester, England, in 1886, the IFAB (International Soccer Council) was created to create international football rules, and in 1888, the first football league, the Football League, was also born.

At the time, there were two huge rice cakes that fundamentally changed the degrees of freedom in football: "Can I use my hands?" And "Can I go forward?" Finally, in the FA, "You can't use your hands and pass forward." There is." The rebels will drop off and form rugby football, including the Rugby Union and Rugby League.

In addition, a chaotic variation that draws hands from rugby and forward passes from football is a grid iron football system, including Canadian football and American football. Ironically, football has become a sharp front line sport that is completely different from the (FA) football and rugby activities. [7] Australian football and Gaelic football were made to throw the ball every step like a basketball, and to pass it only like a handball in order to enforce limited hand rules in rugby.

Football, which was enjoyed by the British, began to spread around the world at the same time as the British Empire's heyday. British merchants, soldiers, missionaries, and international students distributed football in every country they went to, and by the beginning of the 20th century it would be hard to find a country that does not play football around the world.

Later, with the establishment of FIFA in France in 1904, football began to become an international organization and the 1930s FIFA World Cup was held.

As mentioned above, England, where the world's first league was formed, has been ignored as a poor workers' competition and even the FA Cup was initially ignored. The college team, which was a participating team, also abstained from watching the rowing game.The result was that the initial soccer player income was very low, and the average salary of the soccer players in the early 1900s was about £ 5. Of course, inflation at that time was not even a low price, but the amount was not much higher than the average salary of ordinary workers.

In 1913, however, the perspective changed when George V made his first official visit to football at Goodison Park to watch a football game. In the 1920s, the average player salary jumped to more than 100 pounds. By that time, professional soccer leagues began to emerge in Spain and Italy, and football and league booms gradually spread. It is more established worldwide.

4. Korea

Since ancient times, ball games played with kicks have been handed down. It also appears in Samguk Sagi [8]. This is because Silla came from the Tang Dynasty. Based on this, China teaches children that China is the dominant country of football. Of course, it is actually similar to football, which was soccer and play, but it is not known exactly because it is not transmitted to modern times what it was in form and what rules were.
In Korea, modern football was first introduced during the flowering season. The official record is that it was the beginning of the English navy of the British navy who came to Incheon port in 1883. That's why, in 2003, as a celebration of the 120th anniversary, the British in navy uniforms and Koreans in hanboks held soccer tournament events. In the old Korean ball game, it was popular to kick high even when soccer came in because the game was scored by throwing a ball into the pole and putting the ball there.
During the Japanese occupation, soccer had given hope to Koreans. In particular, Koreans who watched the Japanese teams defeated felt ecstasy and flocked to the football field to independence. Japan lags far behind Korea's record before the J-League was founded in 1992.

Naturally, the Governor-General planned the Soccer Control Decree in 1934, and Cho Man-sik opposes it and eventually withdraws it.

[1] Both of them were read in Hun and Pokémon, respectively.
[2] Real Madrid was also initially known as Madrid FC. AC Milan didn't say Football, but Associazione Calcio is a free kick with the rules set by the FA. The club name is English. Not Milan, but 'Milan', so I said.
[3] The church, the center of the village at that time, was chosen as the point. That's why many European and Latin American football teams today are church-made football teams, such as Chelsea, Fulham and Tottenham. In addition, a soccer team (man Ut. Representative) and a team of soldiers (Army) kept the cannon-keeping arsenal. The soccer team you created (Juventus) is the majority of the modern soccer team.
[4] It was all about sports. It was in the mid-twentieth century that the substitution of football was introduced, and it was 1998 and 2006 that back tackles and elbows were banned.
[5] Westerners, who had forgotten what their ancestors did in the past, came to Joseon in the 19th century and saw Chosun people enjoying stone temples.
[6] Henri II was a football fan. In his court football, players played in uniform, with the king team wearing white and the opposing team wearing red.
[7] The sport with the highest degree of freedom in the football world, in opposition, became a sport that tried to push a block of 10 yards away. In this regard, some people think that the actual war and strategy tactics are similar in all of the ball games. At American Military Academy, football is a must.

Football / History

"Football history"

The history of football begins with the traditional football game in Europe, especially in medieval Spain in olden days. However, modern football has its origin in the advent of the Football Association (FA), founded in England in 1863. Several clubs in London have come together to create an indisputable universal rule for playing. At that time, soccer teams had their own rules and methods, and when playing against other teams, they had to set rules before the game started. There was no immediate impact of the FA rule enactment. The reason was that football still existed as an amateur sport. In addition to working class sports, entrepreneurs created the first professional clubs to take advantage of the opportunity to make money by gathering the crowd to see star players. Once professionalism was established, the game became very popular and soon spread throughout the world through British emigration. And it became one of today's world sports.

"Football association"

Main article: English Football Association § History
In the early 1860s, attempts were made to unite and integrate the various football games held in private schools in England. J.C., who created and promoted Cambridge rules John Charles Thring was a teacher at the Uppering School in 1862. He created his own rules and named them "the simplest game" (also known as the Upperingham rules). In early October 1863, the newly revised Cambridge Rules were made by seven committees of graduate representatives of Harrow, Shrewsbury, Eaton, Rugby, Marlborough and Westminster.

Hull's attorney, Ebenezer Cobb Morley, proposed to establish a governing body for football. Molly was the first secretary of the Football Association (1863-1866) and the second president (1867-1874). But what is especially remembered about him is the first of his writings, the rules of the game, that underlie the current rules of football around the world. This is why he is revered as the father of football as well as the father of the football association.

On the evening of October 26, 1863, several football team representatives met at Freemason Tavern on Long Acre Street in London's Covent Garden District. This was the first meeting of The FA. Since the Football Association was the world's first football official, the British do not put the word 'England' before the Football Association. Chatterhouse in London was the only school to attend. The first meeting concluded that each private school representative was asked to join the association. Most schools refused, with the exception of Tuffham's Upperingham School. Six football association meetings were held from October to November 1863. J. F. Alcock, who was a member of the committee, said, "The Cambridge rule was the most coveted thing the Association wanted to adopt."

After the third meeting, a draft of the rules was published by the Football Association. But at the beginning of the fourth session it was the recently published Cambridge Rules of 1863 that caught the attention of the world. The Cambridge rules differed significantly from the draft of the Football Association Rules. That is, there was a difference between playing with the ball and hacking (kicking the opponent's shin). The two rules that caused the debate are:

IX. If the player has duly caught the ball or has caught the ball in the first bound, the player may play with the ball towards the opponent's goal; However, if the ball is caught legitimately, it may not run if the player has a defensive position.
X. If either player has the ball and is the opponent's goal, any player on the other side has the freedom to intercept, catch, kick, shin or twist the ball. But no one should catch and kick the shank at the same time.
At the fifth meeting, a proposal was made to exclude the above two rules from the rules of the Football Association. Most delegates supported the proposal, but only F. W. Campbell, the president of the Blackheath Rugby Club and the first treasurer of the Football Association, strongly rejected it. "Hackling is the real football," he said. Nevertheless, the proposal was executed at the last meeting, and Campbell withdrew his team from the free agent. After the final meeting on 8 December, the Football Association published "Football Rules." This was the first comprehensive and comprehensive football rule. Football was also called "soccer" for shortening "association football". This was to distinguish Rugby football, the English football of the day, with the ball, and "Sucker" is generally the name of football in many countries today. ]]) Can still distinguish the rules.

The rules of football approved by the Football Association members specified the maximum width and width of the stadium grounds, the order of kickoffs, and definitions of terms such as goal, throw-in, and offside. It was still allowed to catch a passing ball, and only the ball "justly or first bound" was used. Despite this detailed description, there were no detailed rules regarding the wearing of footwear, the number of players, the penalty, the foul action or the shape of the ball, so the captain and supervisor of the team participating in the match must first agree on this before the match. did.

"Creation of meeting"

The rules created by the Football Association had an immediate effect, and Sheffield and Nottingham (now Notts County) decided to take part in a year-long race under the FA rules. Chesterfield and Stoke participated in the next two years, which meant that a codified form of sport was no longer an exclusive sport for private schools. Up to this point, each team had 11 players, and the game was round. Previously, all players in front of the ball were offside, eliminating passing the ball forward, similar to today's rugby. This rule was relaxed. In 1866, a match between Sheffield and London was held by the Football Association to observe how the rules were applied. As a result, the ball-handling rule was abolished except for one teammate and the goalkeeper. A red string was also attached between the two goal posts, indicating the height of the goal. And a national convention was proposed.

"First FA Cup"

On July 20, 1871, Charles William Alcock, a Sunderland graduate and Harrow School graduate, proposed hosting a "Champion Challenge Cup" in association with the Football Association. [1] It was. At the first FA Cup in 1872, Wanderers and the Royal Engineers competed in front of over 2,000 spectators. Although the Royal Engineers were a strong champion, one player continued to play with a broken collarbone, but at that time the replacement system had not yet been introduced, so the Royal Engineers played the remaining game with one less player, Eventually he lost 1-0.

The FA Cup was a success, and in a few years all the teams who wanted to play in England were in. In order to participate, they had to comply with FA rules, which allowed for the rapid spread of universal rules. These rules became the main basis of the current football stem.

Later, the tournament was led by 'gentlemen' and Southern-sponsored Old Itinerians, Wanderers, Royal Engineers, and Oxford University, who won 19 championships. Queens Park withdrew from the semi-finals of the 1873 FA Cup (this year was called the FA Challenge Cup because it was organized in a way that challenges Wanderers, the winner of the tournament). Because there was a problem with the ongoing burden of traveling to England. This immediately led to the establishment of the Scottish Football Association. Nevertheless, Queens Park was twice in the final until 1887, when the Scottish Football Association banned Scottish clubs.

In 1872 Alcock bought the FA Cup trophy for £ 20. That year, 15 teams took part in the first tournament, and Queens Park advanced to the semi-finals without a match due to the opposition's abstention. But in the next game against Wanderers, Queens Park had to withdraw without a goal. At that time, before extra time and penalty shoot-outs, Queens Park could not afford to come back to London. After winning the semifinals, Wanderers won the first FA Cup title.

"First league"

In 1888, Aston Villa's manager William McGregor insisted on planning a league competition at a conference involving twelve football teams in London and Manchester. These 12 clubs later become first year members of the Football League. The meeting was held in London on March 22, 1888, and the main agenda was that the team that dropped out early in the knockout FA Cup had no game for almost a year, so not only financial losses, but also the fans, It's because you're staying in for a while, so when other teams play, you're hanging around. The agenda was decided in Manchester on April 17.

McGregor voted for the name of the football league, [2] but for the majority, the name was chosen. Competitions will be scheduled and scheduled between league teams. The teams were divided equally into North, Midland and South, strictly speaking, still amateurs.

The Football League, a rival league, lasted from 1889 to 1892. In 1892, the two leagues decided to formally merge, and the Football League Second Division was created, including most of the Football Alliance teams. The current league teams combined the top three of the Alliance teams to form the first division of the Football League.

"First international game"

Charles William Alcock, who was the secretary of the Football Association at the age of 28, was contemplating creating a regular international convention between England and Scotland. His advertisement in Glasgow was to show people international competitions between the two countries. After the commercial, he set up a team of Scottish players and claimed Bobby Smith, one of the three brothers who helped establish Queens Park FC. His team consisted of all Scots living in England. [3] The first international match, held in Glasgow, Scotland, on November 30, 1872, scored 0-0 without scoring, but was one of the most intense rivalries ever made in football history. The second match between the two teams was held on March 8, 1983 and returned to England's 4-2 win, with Scotland winning 2-1 in the next match. The fourth match drew 2-2, after which he returned to victory in Scotland for three consecutive games. (All matches between the two teams can be found on the FIFA website.) As of 2008 the results of both teams are as follows.

England: 45 Win 24 Draw 41 Lose
Scotland: 41 Win 24 Draw 45 Lose
The first non-European team was played on 28 November 1885 in Newark, New Jersey, between the United States and Canada, with a 1-0 victory over Canada.

"Amateur to pro"

When football gained popularity in the 1870s and 1880s, professionalism was banned in England and Scotland. But when Wanderers disbanded in northern England in the 1880s, teams began to hire 'professional players'. It was the first time professionalism was introduced to football. Clubs in the working class, particularly in northern England and Scotland, wanted professional football in addition to labor. Some clubs have accused of hiring professional players. In 1885, the Football Association was justified and recognized by professional footballers. However, wage restrictions existed. The northern clubs, which employed the lower class as players, were resilient and surpassed the amateur southern gentleman. Blackburn Rovers, the northern club team that won the FA Cup final in 1882, lost to the Old Itiners, who became the last amateur team to win the FA Cup.

Early English women's teams, such as Preston's Dick Kerr's Lady, gained popularity through games that raised charity. The first recorded women's soccer game was played on March 23, 1895, between England's northern and southern teams. The charity race for fundraising continued despite opposition. In 1921, women were prohibited from playing in FA league matches. The history of the Football Association states that the ban "damned virtual games" in England for the next 40 years.

In 1934, Malmö, a Swedish club, was relegated from the Swedish First Division after discovering that he had paid salaries to players who were not allowed in Sweden at that time.

"Football spread all over the world"

European continent
The oldest club team in the continent is the Swiss club Lausanne Football Cricket Club, founded in 1860.

Football was introduced in 1879 by residents of England to the Danish club Schöbenhavn BK (KB) and the Swiss club FC St. Gallen. This made KB and St. Gallen the oldest football clubs on the continent. The Danish Football Association was founded in 1899. Football in Italy began in 1898, when it was founded, and in 1929, when the Italian Football Association organized Serie A as a national league. The Spanish national league, La Liga, started its first season in 1928, and the Copa del Rey championship team, which started in 1902, also joined the following season. The German football league Bundesliga was founded in 1963 because of its late establishment among European countries. The German Football Association was founded in 1900, and in 1903 the first German football championship team was decided. Before the Bundesliga was organized, German football played amateur football in a number of regional leagues.

"South America"

The first football match recorded in Argentina was played by English rail workers in 1867. The first club team in South America was Himnassia La Plata, founded in 1887. Pro League in Argentina was created by the Argentine Football Association in 1931. The Argentinian Football Association was founded in 1893 by Alexander Watson Hutton, a Scottish school teacher. Argentina's first football tournament was held in 1891 and became the oldest league outside of England.

An Englishman named John Miller, who worked at the railway construction site in Sao Paulo in the 1870s, brought in more than 3,000 migrants from Britain in the 1890s. John Miller decided to send his son Charles William Miller to England for education, and in 1884, when Charles was 10 years old, he sent to Vanister School in Southampton. Charles stood out as a natural football player. The Football Association was founded at that time. Many colleges in England have created their own football rules, and Charles has a reputation for being a winger and striker, joining the Southampton Club team and being selected for the Hampshire national team.

When Charles returned to Brazil, he brought football equipment and a set of rules. He created new rules for the sao paulo community. Six years before his return, in 1888, the first sports club, Sao Paulo AC, was founded in Sao Paulo. Miller's technology was already quite different from his peers at that time. He made his name in the Hall of Fame by bolting with heel.

Charles Miller has had deep ties with English football throughout his life. Southampton Club and Corinthians FC came to Brazil to play against Sao Paulo AC and other teams in Sao Paulo. In 1910, after the Corinthians traveled to Brazil, a new regional team was born. Charles proposed to name the team Corinthians, and the current Corinthians were born.

The Brazilian Football Association was founded in 1914 and the current Brazilian Serie A began in 1971.

"The development of football expanding globally"

"FIFA Founded"

The increasing popularity of international competition in the early twentieth century necessitated the need for a single organization to oversee football games around the world. The British Football Association became the main cause, and various discussions about the establishment of international organizations came, but agreed that no progress was made and seven European countries came together to form a new association. Thus the FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) was founded on May 21, 1904 in Paris, France. The name FIFA is an acronym for the French name, which is still in use today and is used in non-French languages. The first president is Robert Geren.

The first international competition organized by FIFA was in 1906, with little success. This was inextricably linked to economic factors, resulting in a quick change of chairman. The second president was Daniel Burley Woolpole from England. The next tournament, the football competition at the 1908 London Olympics, was even more successful despite the appearance of professional footballers who went against FIFA's football principles.

FIFA's membership extends beyond Europe, with South Africa joined in 1909, Argentina in 1912, and the United States in 1913.

However, FIFA began to suffer as a result of many soccer players participating in the war during World War I and severely limited travel to international competitions. At the end of the war, following the death of the president, Wolfol, the federation was taken over by Alexander Bartolomeu, but in 1919 he was taken over by Dutchman Karl Hutchman. The association survived, but at the expense of the withdrawal of four nations in England (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) who were reluctant to participate in international competitions with world war antagonists.

In 1946, four countries in the United Kingdom joined again. On May 10, 1947, "The Game of the Century" won a 1-1 victory over Britain and `` European XI '' with 135,000 spectators at Hampdon Park in Glasgow, Scotland. Revenue from the game amounted to £ 35,000, which was given to FIFA, which could be resurrected after World War II. This led to the first World Cup in post-war Brazil in 1950. In the meantime, FIFA has continued to expand its membership until then, bringing 84 members to its 50th anniversary.

"FIFA Men's World Cup"

"<nowiki /> Main article: FIFA World Cup"

 The finals of the first tournament were Argentina and Uruguay, insisting that both countries should use their own balls (at the time, the ball specifications of each country were not unified). Ball was used. Many countries did not participate in the first World Cup, mainly America. By 1950, however, European teams were interested and the tournament evolved into the largest football tournament in the world. Many competitions emerged from this. — European Football Championships, Copa America in South America, OFC Nations Cup in Oceania, Asian Cup, Africa Nations Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup in North America became the main competitions of each continent. Brazil won the championship five times as the world cup winner. Germany won the most recent 2014 FIFA World Cup.

"FIFA Women's World Cup"

<nowiki /> Main article: FIFA Women's World Cup
The first tournament of the FIFA Women's World Cup was the 1991 FIFA Women's World Cup, with 12 teams from China. In the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, 650,000 spectators visited the stadium and nearly one billion viewers watched in 70 countries. Since 2003, 16 teams have entered the finals. Five tournaments were held, including the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, twice with the United States and Germany and one with Norway. The continental federation name for women's soccer is the same as the continental name for men's soccer.

Son Heung-Min's team Tottenham Hotspur has dropped to fourth place in the 2018-19 Premier League (EPL), but has virtually confirmed the 2019--20 European Football League (UEFA) Champions League.

In the last four Premier League games, he laughed after winning 3 points. Arsenal, Manchester United's suicide.

Arsenal and United have drawn side by side on Sunday.
Arsenal scored 1-1 against Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester United with Huddersfield Town.

Tottenham took a chance in Bournemouth on the 4th and was given a chance to pursue, but lost only one victory point, not three. It's hard to overtake Tottenham after one game.

Tottenham, who lost third place in Chelsea (71 points), have 70 points. Arsenal are fifth with 67 points and sixth with 66 points.

Chelsea won the Champions League in two seasons with four points ahead of Arsenal. Chelsea stayed fifth in the 2017-18 Premier League. United, on the other hand, can't beat Tottenham regardless of the rest of the match.

Tottenham are third in points with Arsenal. If Tottenham are defeated and Arsenal win in the final, the points will be the same. However, Tottenham are 28 goals ahead of Arsenal (+20).

Assuming Arsenal's loss to Everton, Arsenal will have to win seven more goals in Burnley and away.

Arsenal is virtually flawless. The big four have been eliminated for the third consecutive season since 2016-17. At the end of the Arsene Wenger era, Unai Emeri grabbed the baton, but the results were unchanged.

Tottenham were less burdened with Everton. If they win at Bournemouth, they secured at least fourth place on their own, but lost and Son Heung-min and Juan Pois left.

Tottenham have recently slumped to a 1-3 record in four Premier League games. But Arsenal (1 draw and 3 losses) and Manchester United (2 draw and 2 losses)
Tottenham will be able to focus on the quarter-final of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League. Tottenham lost 0-1 to Ajax in the first leg of the semifinals. The second leg of the semifinals will be held at 4 am (Korea time) on the 9th.

American teenagers are gathering in the park in the evening to play soccer.
American teenagers are gathering in the park in the evening to play soccer.
I recently visited Florida for 9 nights and 10 days to cover American school and sports. During his stay in the United States, he walked hard on television as he had time, but barely saw any news about the 2006 German World Cup. On the other hand, baseball basketball ice hockey golf news was overflowing.

The world outside the United States is thriving with the 2006 German World Cup football. Why are Americans cold about football?

The United States is the world's fifth largest football player, after Brazil, the Netherlands, and Mexico in terms of the World Football Federation (FIFA) ranking (as of May 2006). The World Cup was held once (1994). It may be an expression of confidence that the United States first announced a list of players to compete in the German competition. The girls are stronger than the boys. The world's strongest skills. He won the first round of the Women's World Cup (1991, China) and 1999 (USA). The women's world cup was held twice in 1999 and 2003.
If you go to a park in the neighborhood, you can see a lot of men and women playing soccer. Many children learn to play football. As long as I was there, it wasn't until 4-5 pm that football lovers started to gather in the park.

Why are television, newspapers, and the general public treating football, the world's most popular sport? Of course, this question must be raised. So I briefly walked sideways for the purpose of a business trip and explored why with some sports officials I met in the United States.
Then about two answers were gathered.
One is that it doesn't match Americans' way of thinking and culture.
Charles Williams, associate vice president of physical education at the University of Florida, said, “American football and basketball are always shown in seconds and the remaining time is displayed. But football is tense and thrilled just because it's a big time. "Do you think there's a cultural mismatch" He said. "I had a trip with my family in Europe. My son was very interested in football. . He said, "American football is one of the world's top 10," he shook his head with "no idea." An international student in the Ph.D. in physical education in the United States said, "American football is a game that represents the pioneering spirit and rational spirit of the United States, so it will be hard to replace it." "It's a game of measurement or statistics, and it feels like football is killing, which makes Americans feel bored."
Japanese soccer expert Takeo Koto also said in a book called Travel to Seke Soccer, Americans who believe in rationalism are not strong because of the popularity of football as a sport that participates in the United States. He explained that he would not easily accept irrationalism, which often wins.
 Second, American football (called American football), baseball, and basketball are firmly established as major sports, so there is no room for emerging sports, soccer (called American soccer). “Soccer hasn't been around for a long time in the US,” he said. “European football has been active in the club system, but the United States has evolved into college sports. There's a lot of soccer, so there's a limit to going to a pro or the next level. ”
Michael Hill, director of marketing for the University's Athletic Commission, said, “Football and basketball have long been rooted here, but football is just the beginning.” "I enjoy playing soccer," Hill said. There is also a girls' team at the school, "he said." But it's still unpopular with the public. "It's as if American football is not popular in Europe. The root is different. "It's not a cultural difference," he said. "Soccer is boring. Baseball is a boring game, but it's popular with many people." For example, when the United States defeated China at the 1999 Women's Football World Cup football competition in the United States, its popularity soared, but it quickly sank.

However, both men and young people, including children, enjoyed a lot, and predicted that it will change over time. “But it will take time for football to be competitive in the United States. Basketball at the University of Florida wasn't that popular 10 years ago, but it's gaining in popularity as new coaches come in and steadily improve their performance. ”
Can time be the key to keeping America and football in tune? As I felt while staying in the United States for a while, I had no choice but to weigh 'No'ol.

FIFA consider canceling Qatar World Cup? Possibility of holding US and UK

The South Korean soccer team, headed by Paulo Bento, will face Lebanon and North Korea in the second round of the Qatar World Cup Asia in 2022. Don't be vigilant, but objectively, you've avoided the 'zo of death'.

Korea will be included in Group H of Lebanon, North Korea, Turkmenistan, Sri Lanka and Group H at the 2nd round of the 2022 Qatar World Cup Asia qualifiers held at the AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on June 17 at 6 pm (Korea time).
The World Cup Asia 2nd Round Qualifiers will be held until June 2020, which is divided into eight groups of five teams. A total of 12 countries, including the top eight in each group and the four of the top two in the group, have qualified for the 4.5 World Cup finals assigned to Asia.

The World Cup journey begins in earnest with the second qualifier draw. South Korea attended the group draw, which Bento directly held in Malaysia.

South Korea (37th) was ranked as the top seed among the five ports because of the FIFA ranking in Asia after Iran (20th) and Japan (28th). Australia (43th), Qatar (55th), UAE (67th), Saudi Arabia (69th) and China (73th) will be assigned to Port 1 and will not face each other in the second qualifying round.

It is not bad to avoid the burdens of Iraq, Uzbekistan and Syria, with the greatest interest in port two. All three countries say that the power does not drop much compared to those in port one.

Lebanon recently met four times in the second round of the 2018 Russia World Cup qualifiers and the 2014 Brazil World Cup qualifiers, leading three wins and one draw. What catches the eye is that they are in line with North Korea (122th). It is noteworthy whether the Pyongyang expedition will be completed as the inter-Korean confrontation is confirmed.

South Korea played in pairs with North Korea in the third and final qualifiers for the 2010 South Africa World Cup, but played in Shanghai, China, where the North avoided the Pyongyang home game. However, given that the relations between the two countries have changed, it is impossible to exclude the picture of the inter-Korean soccer teams facing each other in Pyongyang.

It is not bad to consider the fatigue of traveling with North Korea as well as with Sri Lanka. However, the Lebanese and Turkmenistan wars must face a hard road.

South Korea will play their first match against Sri Lanka on September 10, home games against Turkmenistan on October 10, and North Korea on October 15. Later, on November 14th, the 2019 expedition to Lebanon will end.

Afterwards, Sri Lanka (home), March 31, Turkmenistan (expedition), North Korea (home) on June 4, and Lebanon (away) on June 9 will be played next year.

Recently, the UEFA president Michel Platini was arrested for illegally intervening in the process of selecting the host country of the 2022 World Cup and is being rippled in the football world.

On the 18th, Platini was arrested for intervening to select Qatar during the December 2010 World Cup voting. Former President Platani argued that he was not involved in corruption but detained for other reasons and had nothing to do with hosting the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
But the ripples did not subside. On Tuesday, TNT Sports reported that FIFA was reviewing a candidate to immediately change the venue of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, involving corruption. Following media reports that FIFA held a secret talk about whether the site could be changed, netizens in the UK and China are not excited.

However, the venue is unlikely to change. Three years are still left to host the World Cup, but three years is not long enough to prepare for the world's biggest festival.
It is also practically difficult for FIFA to compensate for the cost of preparation and facilities for Qatar, which has been preparing for the World Cup since 2011. If corruption is involved, it is unlikely that FIFA will acknowledge it, reverse its decision, and undermine its own confidence.

The Qatar World Cup will be played from November 21 to December 18, 2022 due to the hot local climate. This is in contrast to the World Cup held so far in June and July, when clubs have a break.

In November and December, soccer clubs around the world are in full swing, so public opinion is that in countries where club football is important, the boy must play the Qatar World Cup.

Qatar world cup host country change, is it a possible scenario?
