Typical hat for that American girl....

It's called "football". Bloody yanks.... (n)





Oh, and before any American starts complaining, carefully read this explanation:

Soccer is the American word I think...

We call it ποδόσφαιρο ,

which is two words πόδι(foot) and σφαίρα(ball) joined together..

P.S:Good luck on tonight's match my friend..Hope you win...
I am with Portugal (y)

soccer
1889, socca , later socker (1891), soccer (1895), originally university slang (with jocular formation -er ; see -er (3)), from a shortened form of Assoc ., abbreviation of association in Football Association (as opposed to Rugby football); cf. rugger , but they hardly could have taken the first three letters of Assoc.

So blame it on oxford students of the past.
