FOOTBALL (by Egoitz)

The IFAB (International Football Association) board founded the game in the 19th century.

The very first international Football match was a match between Scotland and England in 1872.

Players wore long pants and hats or caps too.

Balls were not exactly round; they had an egg shape and they were made of pig´s bladder and a leather case.

In the  FA rules of 1863 there was no crossbar. If the ball went between the posts,it was a goal no matter the hight.

Football was for rich in England. In the 19th century. The working class adopted the sport in the end of the 19th century.

There were no referees  or penalties in the original rules of the game. Players were expected to be gentlemen .
