Muchas diferentes culturas han jugado similares deportes a lo que ahora es el Futbol moderno, nadien sabe exactamente donde y cuando empezo, pero si se sabe que diferentes variaciones que ahora se conoce como futbol empezo hace 3000 años atras.

Una de las Primeras maneras o formas de futbol donde los jugadores patiaban un balon alrededor de un campo puede ser trazado a 1004 B.C. en Japon. El Museo Etnologico de Munich en Alemania tiene texto Chino de aproximadamente 50 B.C. que menciona juegos similares al futbol que se jugaba entre equipos de Japon y China. Los Chinos patiaban un balon de piel lleno de cabello, y se sabe con certeza que futbol se jugaba en el siglo 611 A.D. en la cpital Japonesa, Kyoto.

Con la Copa Mundial del 2010 en Sur Africa muchos aficionados estan apoyando a sus equipos nacionales al estar la fecha de la apertura de los partidos muy cerca. Futbol es el deporte mas visto en el mundo, mas que los juegos Olimpicos, futbol es mas grande que el baseball, Football Americano, y el balocesto combinados.

Mientras hacia la investigacion para hacer este articulo también encontre que la Copa Mundial tiene sus defectos, la Copa Mundial del 2006 que se llevo acabo en Alemania, donde la prostitucion es legal atrajo 40,000 prosttitutas.

La Autoridad Central de Africa de Drogas hizo una estimacion que también se cree que 40,000 trabajadoras sexuales vendran a Johannesburg para la Copa Mundial, de partes como Russia, el Congo y Nigeria para sastifacer a 4000,000 la mayoria de hombres visitantes y sus necesidades.

En Prensa Pobre tenemos coneciones de Africa donde camaradas compartieron sus historia de como gente Pobre también esta siendo desplazada para que los turistas no miren la pobreza que pasa en Sur Africa.

No me sorprende como nuestra gente pobre y oprimida es usada para sexo, y nos esconden para que no se mire la cuidad fea, Yo amo al futbol pero estoy contra las injusticias.

Many different cultures have played a sport similar to the modern game of soccer but no one can really say when or where soccer began, but what is known is that the earlier variations of what later became soccer were played almost 3000 years ago.

One of the earliest forms of soccer in which players kicked a ball around on a small field has been traced as far back to 1004 B.C. in Japan. The Munich Ethnological musuem in Germany has Chinese text from approximately 50 B.C.. that mentions games very similiar to soccer that were played between teams from Japan and China. The Chinese kicked a leather ball filled with hair, and that soccer was played in 611 A.D. in the then Japanese capital, Kyoto.

With the 2010 World cup in South Africa many fans are rooting for their national teams as the World cup near opening match approaches. Soccer is the most watched single sport event in the World even more watched than the Olympics, Soccer is bigger than baseball, football and basketball combined.

As i was doing the research for this article i also found out that the World cup is no stranger to the sex trade, the 2006 World Cup in Germany, where Brothels and sex work is legalized has , brought in approximately 40,000 sex workers.

South Africa's Central Drug Central Authority has also estimated that 40,000 sex workers will come to Johannesburg for the 2010 World Cup, from as far as Russia, the Congo and Nigeria to cater to the wide "tastes" of some 400,000, mostly male, visitors and their "needs".

In POOR Magazine we have comrades from Africa's Shackdwellers Union that told us their story of how poor people have been being displaced, removed and evicted out of their shacks in preparation for the World Cup so that tourists would not see the poverty in South Africa.

I am not surprised that oppressed people are used as sex workers or are swept under the rug, this is typical, but as much as i love Soccer I am against all these unjustices.
