Soccer (a.k.a Football, The Beautiful Game) is a sport that has been played in one form or another throughout the world for at least 2000 years. No one has the right to claim it as a sport they invented, neither the British, French, Chinese nor any others. This sport has evolved over the centuries and has adopted characteristics from around the world. The English in the 1800's were the first to create a Football Association, regulating the sport and creating the basis of the "Laws" we know today, they did not invent the sport, the Brit's formalized it. Before anyone comments further on who invented the sport and it's origins please do you research. Start at the official FIFA website, they have a breif history of the sport on their website.
P.S: Soccer is a word invented in England, it is a bastardization on the word "Association Football" to distinguish between Rugby Football (a.k.a Rugger) and Association Football (a.k.a Soccer) on University campus in the 1800's where both sports were played.
To all my English/UK friends ... stop complaining, you invented the word we use today. :-)
Yank: You play Soccer?
Brit: What's Soccer, mate?
Yank: You know it as Football.
Brit: Why do you Yanks call it Soccer.
Yank: I don't know, why did you Brit's invent the word?

The best sports in the world, not just for other countries, but in America too! So stop ripping on us 'cause we like football! I mean Americans can rip on people too you know? i LOVE soccer, I play in three leagues so don't go and say Americans hate soccer (football)
I personally don't get football its dumb and HELLO they use their hands! It also stops like evry five seconds for shit so it goes for 4-5 hours!
Soccer takes skill and endurance, I'd like to see a football player run 5 miles (8K) in one game! They MUST keep in shape, whereas football players can be fat as hell (take a look at the defensive line).

Association football, commonly known as football or soccer, is a team sport played between two teams of 11 players each. It is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world. A ball game, it is played on a rectangular grass field, or occasionally on artificial turf, with a goal at each end of the field. The object of the game is to score by manoeuvring the ball into the opposing goal; only the goalkeepers may use their hands or arms to propel the ball in general play. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/or a penalty shootout, depending on the format of the competition.
The modern game was codified in England following the formation of the Football Association, whose 1863 Laws of the Game created the foundations for the way the sport is played today. Football is governed internationally by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (International Federation of Association Football), which is commonly known by the acronym FIFA. The most prestigious international football competition is the World Cup, held every four years. This event, the most widely viewed and famous in the world, boasts twice the audience of the Summer Olympics.
