There was certainly soccer in the UK and Europe well before 1914 - but it may not have come to the US by then.
Its really wierd because in the mens soccer for ex. European teams are better then America but in the womens soccer America is better then the European teams. so i don't really no what the difference is then womens soccer in the us is better i guess.I really don't no. :S.......... Good question thow.
It is played more than it was in the past. I doubt it is played as much as in Europe.
The similarities between the US and Europe is that they have first world economies and have mature democracies.
For the most part, there is no difference between soccer in Botswana and in the US. Soccer in Botswana is less organized and more of a past time.
The AFL is the Australian Football League (a soccer league like the MLS in the US or UEFA in Europe)
In rough figures, Europe's lies between 35° and 70° N, and the US between 25° and 50° N, so that the central point of Europe is more northerly situated than that of the US.
Because people have different interest and different cultures. If we all absolutely LOVED soccer all around the world life would get so boring.
Perhaps this has been lost in translation. In the UK we call them football boots, in the US they are soccer cleats. Same thing, different name.
