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

Your opinion that it "should be" called soccer doesn't make it correct. And for those interested, the greatest UEFA goals is on Sky 1 (UK) right now.

That 'should be' was not expressing my opinion that was me being picky about continuality with the English Language (if you call associated football, football then logically you must also call rugby football, football but this would become confusing. Therefore associated football should technically always be known as soccer.

Hi there

The INVENTORS of the game have first call on what it should be called -- and before they had National Associations and national (and international) rules it was called FOOTBALL -- where unlike its American counterpart (also called football) the game was and still is essentially about using your FEET.

I think most Non Americans can't understand why American Football is actually called FOOTBALL since there is very little to do with actually KICKING a ball.

American Football has more in common with a variant of Rugby played in the North of England and Australia known as Rugby League.

That aside -- Manchester United look to be the most formidable team around ANYWHERE at the moment -- they'll probably win the English Premier League and look good for a UEFA Chamionship Final place (and have a good chance of winning it too).

Still the most INTERNATIONAL game on the planet -- almsot wherever you are and from whatever country you come from Football is a great unifier and you'll always have great fun with fans from all over the world.

Looking forward to World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

Cheers
