Filed an SPI for it, see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/JayM22. If you see this sort of thing happening again please feel free to leave me a note about it on my talk page, I'd been meaning to do this one for ages but was always too lazy. Jenks24 (talk) 00:14, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
The article overly emphasizes the early days of soccer, and makes out it was mainly English immigrants who made the game. The game had an insignificant presence until southern and eastern europeans started the professional league. The sports imported during colonization were cricket and rugby, and these times predated soccer. Pre-1970s the game was mostly played by kids in primary (elementary) schools as rugby was generally too dangerous for them. (This how soccer got a foothold in the US, too.) Usually the school headmaster had the discretion to allow rugby, and many did not allow it or only allowed minimal training.220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:28, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
