              I believe it was an English dude that made the word "soccer" up. Association Football.

                  Just to put things straight, the term soccer is an English term. It just became less and less used in England as the term was adopted in the US out of convenience to distinguish it from American football.

                  Nowadays since US is not a football country most football fans in Europe find it diminishing to use the term soccer. This is as if soccer being too associated to a place where the sport is not played very well would then become a subsport.

                        Football ⚽️ was invented by the British. The word SOCCER was also invented by the British in Oxford university. No idea why

                              It should be called gridiron. Everyone knows football is football even people that say soccer know they’re wrong they can’t even argue against it anymore lol.

                                    🤔 Americans should rename their ‘football’ to EggHand’ coz the ball shaped a bit like a egg and they use their hands 🤷🏻‍♂️

                                                  The reason it's called soccer in America its because in England they had rugby football and soccer football by time soccer football got around to American they already had American football so they just called it soccer

                                                          Back in the 1800s upper class people played sports on horseback and lower class people played sports on their feet , hence football. British immigrants brought rugby football and association football in its early stages to the United States from which American football diverged from by officially calling it just Football and changing its rules. Yale University seems to be the official originator of the game, however it was already being played as such in the fields. The immigrant brits called association football “Soccer” because it was easier to say and remember and it stuck. Rugby, Soccer, Football(American) are all forms of football because you play a ball while on your feet.

Which is not too far off even when talking about MLS. Europeans and South Americans who go play there are ending their careers and want to cash in in a "minor series". They don't need to stress and sweat like when playing football. Maybe MLS is improving but that's what people think about it outside US.

What they call soccer has always been called football all around the English speaking world, even tho it was sometimes written as soccer in woed by mouth it wasbeither football or footie. In fact the first soccer body founded in 1883 was called American Football Association.
