American football is played in many countries other than America like Sweden, Australia, Germany, South Africa, Japan, England, Netherlands and Mexico.The first ever American football game was played on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers and Princeton.NFL Europa was the development league of the NFL which operated from 1991 to 1992 and then from 1995 to 2007. American football can be seen in the starting stages of soccer and rugby. Whereas soccer was first played in England in the mid of 19th century where the ball had to be ran over the line or kicked into the goal. Both American football and soccer consists of 11 players each.
