No fellas, annoyingly soccer is correct. This is because back in the late 19th century British and colonial games were having sets of rules which were consistent through out the country.
You had Rugby Football (Rugby,because it was invented in Rugby)
You had Grid Iron Football (American Football, because it had a set of rules requiring you to wear a grid iron helmet)
Aussie Rules Football (still called that, in England at least, it is called that for obvious reasons)
Association Football (known to most as football, should really be called soccer because soccer is an abreviation of asociation)
I hope this clears it up, and if you dispute this you will have to take it up with my old History teacher Mr Schofeild, trust me you don't want that.
By the way I'm a casual supporter of Cardiff City but I'm not much of a soccer supporter, I'm a Rugby man myself GO LONDON IRISH
