What is the game called? Soccer or Football

People in European countries call it Football whilst American countries call it Soccer. Me personally call it soccer because here in Australia, our football is AFL (Australian Foobtball League)

Both are correct. Different countires with different languages call the sport different things. It's no different from an American calling it a toilet vs a Brit calling it the john. The meaning of the word is the same.

@Ghret "Both are not correct"?

Why can't everyone just call it soccer? Football is already another thing.

@GeorgeSanderson Football (or soccer) was invented several centuries before American football. So really, you should be saying: why can't everyone call it football?

They are both correct terms, it just depends on where you are from. It is similar to how Australians say 'Jumper' and the British and Americans say 'Sweater'

Whatever you want it's not a big deal. Some people call it soccer, some call it football. How about everyone just enjoys the wonderful sport instead of wasting time on this argument.

You use your feet so its football.
