The very best of Britishness

According to football's world governing body FIFA, the earliest form of football is Cuju, which originated during ancient China's Han Dynasty, but Britain is the home of the modern game, a set of rules being established in the UK in the 1860s. With more than 40,000 association football clubs, Britain also professionalized the sport.
