Because Americans are idiots they call a sport football after there already was a sport called football there was many arguements so Oxford created the term soccer which is short for associated football
The full name for "soccer" is "Association Football," which is so called to differentiate it from other games called Football. Association Football has so many syllables that it has been shortened to "Football." Then when Americans made there own football they renamed it soccer. Americans and Americans only call it soccer
Americans call soccer soccer, and football football!
Only Americans call soccer...soccer! (everywhere else it is known as football)
Football (soccer to Americans).
Americans: Soccer English: Football German: FuseBall
because it is actually called football not soccer. it's the Americans who called it soccer, because they decided to invent their own football, which is more like rugby. And they shouldn't call it football, as they handle the ball (if you can call it that, considering it's not even round) with their hands more than feet. So why not ask the Americans why their version of football is not called a handball or something along these lines? lol
Lmfao soccer is the american word for football obviously americans know what soccer is.
The word Soccer was first used in England. In 1863 it was used to shorten Football Association Americans and a few other countries used it because they called a sport football after traditional football was established
The proper name is Association Football.
Do you mean Americans? If so yes we do. We play your football better known as soccer but its not to famous because its boring. We also play real football.
Not very many. Americans watch mostly football, then basketball, then college football, then college basketball, then baseball, and then soccer is somewhere near the end.
