It is known that Roman harpastum is the antecedent of modern football. The Romans, at the time of the empire, brought this game with them to Great Britain, where they played it fundamentally.
In the Middle Ages, more and more people became passionate about ball games, among them Ricardo Corazón de León, who proposed to Saladin himself settle their questions about Jerusalem’s property with a football match.
For a time in the Middle Ages, football was banned because it had become violent. Later football became the British national sport and, at the beginning of the 19th century, even gave birth to rugby.
The object of the game is limited by a time limit (called the match). It is getting the ball into the opponent’s net as many times as possible; this is called scoring a goal. The winning team is the one that manages to score more goals during the match.
Each team has ten players on the field and a goalkeeper. The most important rule is that the players, except the goalkeeper in his zone, may not touch the ball with their hands or arms (except for touches).
Only the goalkeeper may use his hands, but only to avoid goals in an area called the penalty area. The duration of a match is 90 minutes, divided into two parts of 45 minutes.
