    Football SOCCER

    What does SOCCER realy mean? It has nothing to do with the game that every country except the USA calls FOOTBALL and makes a lot of sence. The game is played with the feet and only the goal keeper can use his hands. On the other hand, the game that is played in the USA with the hands and only the kicker uses his feet is called "FOOTBALL" Can someone explain please.

    "Soccer" is a shortened slang version of the expression "Association Football" to distinguish it from "Aussie Rules Football","American Football","Rugby Football", "Gealic Fotball etc.
