Football is the most popular team game in the world. The game began in England. The first football clubs appeared in 1855.

Football spread ([spred] — поширювався) internationally and won popularity in central Europe.

Spain, Germany, Italy, and France, and other European countries took it up at the beginning of the last century, and established ([i'stæbli∫t] — заснувати) clubs. In 1971 women competed for the first time in the women’s World Cup match in Mexico City.

One nation that resisted ([ri’zistid] — протистояти, опиратися) football’s spread for a long time was the USA. 40 years ago the interest in football developed in the US. Great popularity of the Brazilian star player Pele helped much in this.

Two teams of 11 players play the game of football on a pitch ([pit∫] — футбольне поле). At either end of the field there is a goal post. A goalkeeper defends it. The main task for the players in a game is to force the ball into the small goal area. The winning team is the one which scores ([skɔ:] — забивати) the most goals.
