Just recently, the United States women national soccer team has won the Round 16 soccer match against Columbia. Though critics have said that their style of play is “ugly”, the team beat the other in a score of 2-0.
Soccer has been here for quite a long time. According to the Athletics Scholarship website, “Records trace the history of soccer back more than 2,000 years ago to ancient China. Greece, Rome, and parts of Central America also claim to have started the sport; but it was England that transitioned soccer, or what the British and many other people around the world call ‘football,’ into the game we know today. The English are credited with recording the first uniform rules for the sport, including forbidding tripping opponents and touching the ball with hands.”
And now, the sport is one of the most known all over the world. But sometimes, mistakes are inevitable, and surely the world of football is of no exception.
