The best freaking sport in the world! Not only the most popular (the world cup is watched by more people than the super bowl) but simply one of the best.

And to those who claim it is for pussys and is not a contact sport, I have broken ribs, cause of soccer, as well as a dislocated knee and screwed up ankles, and I know somebody, who could die if she gets another soccer related concussion. So just shut up till you can play for 90 minutes straight with only shinguards on!

a sport that should be called football in America because it makes more sense. but just because Americans changed the name doesnt mean they arent good. i got news for ya! WE are good!! Didnt you see how good America did in the Confederations Cup? if you didnt they almost beat Brazil... in the finals! the score was 3-2 Brazil!!!

Anyway.... football (soccer) involves 2 teams of 11 players kicking the ball around on the field passing around trying to score on the goal. Soccer is very competitive and physical.
American #1- dont you think soccer should really be named football like the rest of the world?

American #2- yes i agree the name for soccer in America is the only bad think about USA

the american term for football. why the yanks call it `soccer`, who knows? 10 players on each team try and score in the opponent`s goal, defended by the goal keeper, who is the only player allowed to pick up the ball. the other ten must use their feet. thus the name football.

Soccer, or futbol, is the worlds largest sport. It requires an extreme amount of skill and natural talent. Usually made fun of by American Football players, when in reality, the sport "American Football" is only a fraction of the size of futbol. It is also proven that to become a professional soccer player, it takes twice the amount of practice compared to an American Football player, you also need a high amount of athleticism, unlike "American Football". This sport is commemorated every 4 years with a "World Cup".
An example of the highly skilled game soccer, people should check out is the Barclay's Premier League

Sure it takes skill, sure it takes dedication. I know that because Ive played the game. But American Football is a real man game. Theres collisions at over 80 mph (Sport Science proved it), the only reason they wear a shit load of pads is so they don't die!! They have to memorize like a billion plays, make reads off the other team, watch game film of themselves and the other team, they have to be able to tackle people who are sometimes 250 pounds, they have to be able to catch (while being tackled too), they have to be able to throw accurately and far, they have to run extremely fast. Football players may only have to run for a couple of seconds but those few seconds take more out of you then a whole 10 minutes in soccer. These football players are the world's greatest athletes. We americans and canadians watch your version of football. Maybe you should try watching ours for once
Soccer. Watch the Superbowl on February 6th. Just give it a try
