Yes it is called soccer and the inventors of the game, the brits, actually came up with the name. Orginally it was called Association Football to separate it from the thugs game (boy how that has changed). The term SOCcer comes from asSOCiation. The more popular term football has been used predominately around the world. Of course in the US we have to separate the game to the players who carry it in their hands and throw it in the air to football and to those who use their feet to kick a ball we call soccer. Only fitting that in the US we get it backwards when it come to the greatest game on earth. (well if the other activity men and women do can be call a game then soccer is second to that)
