Soccer is said to have been traced back from over 2000 years ago in China. However, England stole the show as the country developed the first soccer uniform rules and regulations. 1891 saw the first rule come into place which was the penalty kick. Over time up until 1998, other rules popped up including the introduction of red and yellow cards.
