The Real Football, the Round Ball Code,the Beautiful game, The World Game.

it is Football because
1) a ball defined in a dictionary is a sphere
2) the players, kick with their foot, the Goalkeeper is the exception as he/she can catch the ball

Round ball code most definitely requires skills like other sports. It may not be as physical as other football codes, but it still requires some physical strength and a shit load of mental strength.

remember there are 22 players on field, and they have to be control themselves from diving hard, and resist from fighting with the opponents- (they get carded two yellows and get suspended for a game in internationals, while in domestic league it might be two games, depending on how rough the oul or tackle was), they also have to be able to control the ball, judge the distance when they pass a ball to a teammate (and this is kicking not throwing a ball),or when they do free kicks, players have to concentrate on a small goal post, which is rectangular and has the cross bar, players have to know what there teammates are thinking meaning the players have to work together in the sense that they have to know where to go and receive the ball. The ball is not controlled by hands but by the foot, and its not easy kicking a ball in a cold winters day or a sultry hot day and even worse a rainy day, which is hard because the ball is harder to kick on a rainy day. They have offside rule.

to top it off "soccer" or Futbol/ Football is a mentally top game,its the ultimate human game, technology doe not interrupt the game like other football codes. Its better with the injustices and justices of the game because it creates drama and people talk about it!!!

Football is a hard sport, even a player, and there are other professional football players of other football codes saying that football (soccer) players have a lot of talent and are skillful
an AFL player said that his teammate "(... got in goal at one stage and one of their coaches (football coach) took a penalty. Tom (player) has good hands – we know that – but he barely moved as the ball flashed past him. The speed and precision was immense."

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
