Best Answer

The game of soccer with rules similar to the current rules originated in England with the original name of soccer. For some reason the English changed the name to football, probably because the game mainly uses the feet. The game came to the United States and a few other countries while it still had the name soccer.

The English introduced the Spanish to the game after the name change to football. The Spanish spelled the word phonetically in their language. They spelled the word football as futbol because that was the way it sounded to them. (Very few words in Spanish can be spelled more than one way.)

When Spanish speaking soccer players come to the United States from Latin America, they bring their game of futbol with them.
