Most people say that African men started it they'd use resources around them but instead of special soccer A.K.A. cleats they would use regular shoes. Then after about 94 years of America becoming a country they started it there! In England 1874 instead of calling "soccer" they decided to call it "football" when Americans heard of a second type of "football" they were told it's real name is soccer!
