Soccer Pro Rooney Smoking CigaretteSoccer players do the same things as everyday people like us. They smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol. But top soccer should adhere to certain rules and take care of their body.

On 25 June, the British tabloid “The Sun” published a photo of Rooney that showed him during his honeymoon in a swimming pool. The football star was smoking hanging out in the pool smoking a cigarette. The headline “Marl-Roo-Man” was born.

Full of anticipation the article pointed out that Alex Ferguson of Manchester would surely not tolerate Rooney’s smoking habits because he was considered to be an extremely intolerant non smoker.

What happened when Rooney got back? We don’t know but maybe Rooney was just smoking an electronic cigarette. After reading electronic cigarette testimonials Ferguson may have understood that ecigs do not contain tobacco or tar. But still those devices do contain nicotine which a pro soccer player should not consume (more about cigarettes).

Maradona, one of the most popular soccer players ever, started smoking cigarettes after he retired from the game.

The era of organized football (aka soccer) began in 1863 with the founding of the English Football Association in London. At this time the British Empire was the most influential nation in the world. This historic feature was the basis for the global spread of English football rules in a generation. The first games were held outside the British Isles in the seaports for British sailors.

During the late 19th Century many national associations were born in Europe and America. The first game between representatives of national associations took place on 30 November 1872 in Glasgow between Scotland and England and the game ended goalless.

The 21 May 1904 was another milestone in the history of soccer. On this day in the French federation FIFA was founded to prevent national focused thinking.

In July 1905 FIFA held its second Congress the suggestion of a world championship was made. For this purely European the host country should be Switzerland. Delegates were enthusiastic, but many words were not followed by actions.

Until the first FIFA World Cup in Uruguay in 1930 the Olympics were used as a substitute Cup.
