History of Football could play a factor
In the early 15th century, Football was invented in England. 50-100 people would play on a team and would trample any person who got in the middle of the game. There was no padding, so many people would get injured all the time. Anybody who got injured, was left on the street to die. Because of this happening, the king banned football. This could have played a key role in influencing a major country like England, not to like or play football.
