The book Soccer Around the World, written by Dale E. Howard, is mainly about different countries major wins, and the culture behind soccer. This includes where it originated from in each country, and how the games were started. In ancient China, jugglers worked with wicker balls made out of bamboo twigs woven together. Tsu chu was an ancient Chinese game played by two teams with a stuffed leather ball, and the object of the game was to kick the ball in the goal, just like soccer. The Japanese also played a similar game called, kemari. Its Possible that the Japanese and chinese played against each other around 50 B.C. Native Americans and Central America also, along with the Greeks, Romans, and many other countries. We now have a major soccer tournament known as the world cup, in which 24 teams who qualify play agianst each other to try and be declared as champions.
