    Football, as is the norm in most countries.  Some people get annoyed if it is called soccer, as in America, but it was also known as soccer in UK  up to around the 1950's; my schooldays!

    Football is the correct name, the term soccer is a slang name.

    It's football (or a local version thereof) in almost every country in the world. The Americans call it soccer to distinguish it from the game that girls play there. I assume it's a girls' game as all the players seem to wear helmets and lots of padding to stop themselves getting a booboo and that's not the sort of thing you'd expect guys to do. That said, even girls who play rugby eschew wearing padding so perhaps American Football is just a nice safe game for anyone who doesn't want to play an actually tough sport? I don't really know and, between you and me, care even less but it does all look very girly and silly.

    I must admit I dislike soccer very much, boring to me, 22 men after a ball. Boring. Baseball is much better. And I'm an American not a "yank".
