Did Mexico start soccer?

The answer to as which country started soccer remains a argumentative topic. There were many sports engaged in the past which show close similarity with the current soccer we play.

According to my knowledge, China stands a highest chance of being the country where soccer started. They had a game which involved roughly the same way of play like soccer, except that they did not have a restriction to where the play field is, and that they did not have such rules and yellow and red card.
