Sometimes you can just wear a short with a shirt and play a normal football [soccer] match. I think you should not wear trousers for matches because it could get durty. But if you are playing a match in a football team wear a football [soccer] shirt,long socks,shimpads,football[soccer] shoes and shorts.

You can wear soccer cleats to play american football but it is less than ideal. Soccer cleats do not have a stud on the toe of the cleat like football cleats do. This make it much easier to run, cut and dig into the grass. Most football cleats are also higher and more supportive than soccer cleats. Although if you are a field goal kicker/ punter or kicker in American Football - they all wear soccer cleats. Basically you CAN wear soccer cleats to play American football but you CAN NOT wear American Football cleats to play Soccer.
