One of the earliest forms of soccer is when players kicked a ball around on a small field has been traced back to 1004 B.C. in japan.The Chinese kicked a hair-filled leather ball and it is known that a soccer game was played in 611 A.D in the Japanese capital, Kyoto. Soccer, which is also called football in many countries outside of USA, was played in different forms as early as 50 BC and during the time of the ancients Roman people and Greeks.Soccer was first played under the name Pasuckuakohowog. It was brought to the United States in the 1870s.The modern day version with the goal keepers was defined in 1863 in England when the "football association" was formed. the earliest signs of a feet-based ball game dates back as far as 2500 BC, during which time the Greeks, Egyptians and Chinese all appear to have a part in such activities.
The Oldest Soccer Player
The oldest player to play was Salvador Reyes. He played at the age of 71 with Chivas of Mexico against Pumas of Mexico on January 19 2008.He played for the first minute of the game touching the ball 5 times.He got substituted after all of that.As for the United States or anywhere other than Europe I am unsure.The official record is held by John Ryan the owner of Doncaster Rovers.He brought himself on as substitute in the last minute of a game in 2003 aged 52 years, 11 months. If this counts because he did not touch the ball otherwise New Brighton goalkeeper Neil McBain is the man your looking for.He played away at Hartlepool in a Division 3 North game in March 1947 aged 51 years, 4 months. At the age of 58, Pedro Ribeiro Lima, the oldest professional player in activity, scored the first goal of his career.This could not have happened anywhere else than in Brazil, and its glorious state championships.The world still has people that have dreams of becoming a professional.
Who Invented Soccer
The earliest signs of a feet-based ball game date back as far as 2500BC, during which time the Greeks, Egyptians and Chinese all appear to have partaken in such activities.From the introduction of Tsu-Chu onwards, soccer-like games spread throughout the world, with many cultures having activities that centred on the use of their feet.Captain Randolph P invented soccer in 1899 as a way for his soldiers to unwind in between during the Boer war.The person who drafted the laws of the gamer or 'Association football' was a man called Ebenezer Cobb Morley.Ebenezer, along with other co-authors, agreed the rules at a public house is called the Freemasons Tavern in London on 26th 1863. It was in the middle of the north Atlantic during a break from raiding Dieppe-bound merchant shipping during the Napoleonic wars The captain of his Majesty's Ship The Redoubt, Soccer observed some of his men making fun with a bladder stuffed into a gauze-shirt made waterproof with whale blubber, and recorded the response to some of his enquiries in his Royal Navy log book.The game thus described couldn't really be said to be 'soccer,' but these early jottings were referred to at the inaugural meeting of the Football Association, and formed the basis of the set of formal rules that emerged from that gathering.

How did it get its name
Soccer By Kyler Arruda-Sukehira
Play the ball, not the player. All your actions must be directed at controlling the ball or taking away possession, but never to stop a player or tackle him.You may use any part of your body to control the ball, except for your arms and hands.The goalkeeper, when inside his own penalty area, is the only player on the team that may use his hands or arms to control the ball. There are certain restrictions on this though.11 players on a team, 1 of which is the goalkeeper.If the ball leaves the pitch, the restart depends on where the ball left the field and who touched it last. For example, if the ball crosses the goal line while entering the goal, the restart is a kick-off for the team scored upon.Matches last 90 minutes, divided into two halves of 45 minutes each. A kick-off is used to start play each half.Offside is one of the shortest laws in the Laws of the Game, however it is one of the most misunderstood laws. Basically at the time the ball is played by a teammate, if you are closer to your opponent's goal line than the second-to-last defender and the ball, and you are in the opponent's half of the field, if you become involved (i.e. receive the ball on a pass, screen the goalkeeper) then you have committed the offside offense. It is not an infraction to be in an offside position, however once you become involved in play the infraction has occurred. A yellow card signals a caution. Reasons you receive a caution include: persistent infringement, dissent, unsporting behavior, failure to respect required distance on a restart, and entering or leaving the field without the referee's permission. A red card signals a send-off. If you receive one you must leave the field and the area surrounding the field immediately. Your team must also play with one less player as well. Reasons you receive a send-off include: receiving a second caution in a match, serious foul play, spitting at anyone, violent conduct, and denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by committing a foul.The object of the game is to score more goals than the other team. You score goals by having the ball completely cross the goal line and entering the goal.
The source of the name of the game—almost any game—is usually easy to figure out. You would be correct, for instance, if, knowing nothing about football, you were to deduce that the game involves contact between ball and foot. Similarly, the unschooled could make some pretty good guesses about racquetball, basketball and handball.Now take a shot at soccer. Soccus in Latin and socc in Old English refer to a light shoe and are related to "sock." And, if you were to consult the authoritative Oxford English Dictionary, you would learn that soccer was originally spelled "socker." You might figure the name for soccer is linked to foot-related words.Rugby started off as a charming village in England called Hroca's Burg. Several centuries ago, the village became Rocheberie and then Rokebi. But one mispronunciation led to another, and pretty soon everybody called the town Rugby. Later, the famous Rugby School was created.In 1823, William Webb Ellis, a student at Rugby School, was playing a form of football in which the ball could be handled as long as the participant didn't move his feet. Ellis, out of frustration, picked up the ball and hauled it over the goal line. Ellis' action soon became an accepted practice and was identified with the school as the "Rugby game."What Rugby became famous for was a rough-and-tumble version of "football," which, like most other things, had been passed along by the Greeks and Romans. Eventually, the game's rules were standardized, the size of the field and the shape of the ball were established and the sport became known as rugby football, rugger for short.But many Englishmen did not like the rugby form of football. They favored the earlier, gentler game, in which physical contact was minimized and coordination and cooperation were emphasized. And so, in 1863, an organization was formed to codify the rules for their game. It was called, simply, the Football Association. The game it governed was known as association football (to distinguish it from rugby football); it became abbreviated to "assoc. football" in print and was probably pronounced "soc football. nd, in much the same way that rugby football had become known as rugger, soc football became known as soccer. But, even so, it is popularly called football in Europe and other places where American-style football has been rare; if not unknown. The name "soccer" is used mostly in the U.S. and Canada.Despite the trouble it has had catching on in the United States, soccer is the most popular spectator sport in the world, drawing crowds totaling hundreds of millions every year. You might even say it's had a lot of sock.
