Soccer versus soccer: the dilemma in the United States ahead of the World Cup

England is known as the inventor of football as we know it, however, In America He adopted a term that does not appeal to a large section of the nation. The nation of Stars and Stripes calls the same game ‘soccer’, So, there lies the dilemma. what is the correct way to call it?

basically All countries except Canada, United States of America, Australia and Ireland know this game by the name of soccer. However, despite the fact that everyone associates the word football with American association, the term itself comes from the British.

Soccer as it is known today began in england In 1863, when the newly formed English Football Association drew up a set of rules. At the time, it was the most played sport of its kind in the country, but it was not the only one. Rugby football, named after an English boarding school, was a variation that allowed players to charge and run the ball to advance towards goal. The game played under association football rules came to be known as association football.

Inevitably, the names will be truncated. Linguistically creative students differentiate between games at the University of Oxford in the 1880s “ruggar” (rugby football) and “esoskar” (association football). Despite this, the term never caught on in the UK.


The dilemma came again through a commercial for the potato brand ‘Lays’, in which David Beckham, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez and others assure that the correct word is football, while Mia Haim, Tim Howard and Peyton Manning assure that it is ‘football’.

Although it is more common in American association football to be referred to as ‘soccer’, We’ve heard Christian Pulisic call it football, as has Leeds United manager Jesse Marsh.One who understands that both forms are correct.

The United States will face their equal England on Friday 25 NovemberIts main rival even in the context of ‘soccer’ or ‘football’, so it would certainly be an unacceptable sport, especially considering that the people of Uncle Sam’s land have never lost to the British.
