Best Answer

To clarify the term football refers back to when the game was in fact football. When football (soccer) and Rugby went their different ways we saw the start of The Rugby Football Union which is what is still called today . The game still requires strong elements of kicking, foot work and running dexterity. In the terms used here a "good footballer" refers to the skills of the player generically.
