What is US football called in countries where football is soccer?

Just American Football or gridiron. It is also generally referred to as "gridiron" and "American football" in some countries where "football" is NOT soccer! For instance, it is called by such names in Australia, where most of the country plays Australian Football (or Aussie Rules) and two ot the states mainly engage the rugby codes: Australians refer to their more popular local football brands there as 'football' or 'footy', depending on reference. In New Zealand, where rugby is virtually 'King', the American game is also not referred to as 'football'. In Ireland, football means Gaelic football, not soccer football and not American football. [However, I cannot tell you how the American game is addressed!]
