Dream Team of the Decade: 1910's
Football, as it's now recognized, probably had its main starting point in 1863 when The Football Association (FA) was founded in England and since then it developed almost exclusively in the United Kingdom for the rest of the 19th century. British supremacy continued during the first decade of the 20th century (even after the founding of FIFA in 1904) and only ended when the outbreak of World War I in 1914, which forced the suspension of the English League for 4 years and marked the beginning of the development of this sport in other places.
During this first era and until before 1910 some of the most celebrated figures of British football were Arthur Kinnaird, Billy MacKinnon, Charles Campbell, William Cobbold, Nick Ross,Walter Arnott, John Goodall, Billy Bassett, Gilbert Oswald Smith, Ernest Needham,Steve Bloomer, Vivian Woodward and Billy Meredith.
As of the decade of the 1910's football expanded by leaps and bounds in other European countries (especially in Hungary, Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Czechoslovakia) and South America (especially in Uruguay and Argentina) and in addition of the Olympic Games other international championships emerged as the South American Championship (now called Copa América). The most prominent footballers in the first half of that decade were British (especially English), but in the second half the origin of them diversified.
