Many countries call soccer football, mainly because they do not play American (NFL-style) football, or if they do, it's not as popular as soccer. The term "football" refers to a category of games in which the ball makes contact with the foot in the normal course of play. This is certainly true of soccer, and to a lesser extent, Rugby and the NFL. It is customary for the most-popular football game in a country or region to be called "football", using various other names for the other forms of football. The proper name for soccer is "Association Football".
