OK, here goes... slowly:
The word describes a very populare game, which is played all over the world.
The word consists of two parts, which quite accurately descibes the game:
Part 1) Foot. This means that the foot is the main body part involved when playing this game.
Part 2) Ball. This means that the game is played with a spheric (globe-shaped) object.
This definition seems to be understood all over the world, except in the US, where they have misunderstood both parts of the word. Instead of using their feet, they mainly use their hands. And, instead of using a ball, they use an egg-shaped object.
(Somewhere in the world, exept USA): -Let's play football!
Reaction: they play football
(Somwhere in USA): -Let's play football!
Reaction: they play some strange game, not involving a ball, and hardly using their feet.
