3 points for a field goal in American Football
In US Football, 3 points are awarded for a Field Goal.
A field goal (kicking the ball through the uprights at the end of the field) is worth 3 points in American football. There is no "point after" attempt for a field goal. In contrast, a touchdown (carrying the ball past the goal line) is worth 6 points and allows an attempt for an additional point after touchdown, which closely resembles a field goal.
In European football, then yes, one goal is one point. In American football, a touch down is worth 6 points. A field goal is worth 3 points A safety is worth 2 points. Hope this helps!!
