International sporting occasion are in easing international tensions and releasing patriotic emontions in a safe way?

The popular sport events, like Olympic Game or Football World Cup, are highly important in contributing to the dialogue between peoples and countries. The most known example is a "ping-pong diplomacy" between the United States and Chine in the early 1970s. The ordinary sportsmen have paced a way for the mutually beneficial cooperation. Sport brings together common people from different corners of world. It unites them despite their background, social status, race or religion. It helps people to identify them in the globalized world, where the strongest wins competition in a fair way. It makes people to be proud for their country. There are many examples when sport becomes a religion, in countries like England, Italy or Brazil - football is everything. And when there are many fans and clubs, there will always be opponents. But if there are control and ensured security, extremists with aggressive behaviour will always be in minority. In this regard I agree that the sport plays a positive role in easing international tensions.

How did soccer become a sport?

Soccer became a sport around 1004 B.C.

Answer

Soccer became a sport in the 19th century when in 1963 the newly formed Football Association drafted a new code for football which were distinctly different than any other form of football being played at the time. Before this the word Soccer did not even exist. The man who wrote the 'Laws of the game' for 'Soccer' or 'Association football' was a man called Ebenezer Cobb Morley. Ebenezer along with other co-authors agreed the rules at a public house called the Freemasons Tavern in London on 26th October 1863. Morley became the Football Associations first secretary. He also founded the Barnes Football Club in 1962 which he captained against Richmond football club in the first ever soccer match. The game ended 0-0 but in a return game he scored the first ever goal. He died in 1924 and is buried at a Cemetery on Barnes Common not far from where he drafted the Laws of the game at 26 The Terrace, Barnes, London. A blue plaque commemorating his life's work was placed on the wall of this address by English Heritage in 2009 usa invented in
