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?

A game where the will of other men continually test your foundations, and the conviction with which you attain goals.

a game not to be confused with a sport is were you kick a ball at a really big net.... that's it no skill or talent is required. It was first invented for mentally handicapped children but was soon played by people who realized they had no skill to play real sports. it is the most popular game in the world due to the fact that there are more unskilled low I.Q people in the world then there is skilled athletes.
Tony... I wish there was a game I could play because I suck at all real sports.
Luigi ... try soccer is super easy and requires no skill or talent. just kick a ball and run.
Tony... Thanks pal I think I will try it after I learn to tie my own shoes.

The American word for football because they have to have different words for everything.
Of course, this may confuse some Americans because they also have a sport called football, but their football different.
American football=I have no idea but I think it is some form of rugby.
Rugby=a vile sport.

Of course this is written by a girl and girls don't know anything, obviously. I'm just a mere female creature of this Earth. My opinion doesn't count. Don't listen to me. Listen to some smelly, sweaty guy with a six pack.
He'll know.
Of course he will.

Why wouldn't he? He is a boy after all. Far superior. Girls are good for nothing.

Bob: He, douchebag! Check out my new pants!
Person: Uh, hi. No thank you.
Bob: AW don't be a douchebag! Hey, wanna play some football?
Person: (Takes out a football) Yeah, sure.
Bob: NOT SOCCER, YOU DOUCHEBAG! FOOTBALL! Now get me some peanut butter and jelly.

Possibly the best sport in the world. A sport that requires actual athletic ability. People who have never tried to play soccer, you need to stop criticizing it. In soccer you need to actually be able to run for 90 minutes straight, play through rain and not sub out at all. Practice every day and dedicate yourself to the sport. You need to play through injuries and shin bruises so deep it hurts to walk. You'll pull so many muscles and be so tired but you still walk back to the field because it's the only place you feel at home. Soccer requires dedication, focus, but most of all you need to want to win and you need to try. Soccer is the best sport ever.
You're only making fun of soccer cuz you know you'll never be able to play it

The dumb shit name americans gave to one of the most established and most popular sport in the world.
Also the only game where there is no time outs, 45 minute halfs, and only three subs allowed per game. Whilst copying enemy sports like AMERICAN football has a break after every play, baseball where you can be fat as fuck, and hockey where u can come out when wanted as many times as needed (about ever fucking minute). And also the sport known as a pussy sport, which TOTALLY makes sence because rarely people can keep up the pace after 33 because of reoccurring injuries because you played a game with a torn achilles tendon, pulled ligament, chipped knee, etc.
Fat ass baseball pitcher: Yeah man, look at that soccer player, i bet he can barely outrun a car.
Basketball player: Yeah nigga he is hella pussy he can barely

kick a ball about 100 yards.
