The FA: 150 years in 150 seconds

Football has changed a fair bit since the Football Association was formed 150 years ago.

Back then the game had no corner kicks, no crossbars and any player – not just goalkeepers – could handle the ball.

To mark the launch of their 150th birthday celebrations today, the FA has put together a video of how football has evolved over the century and a half since it was formed.

So let England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain guide you through 150 years of football in (approximately) 150 seconds.
