Created 3 hubs my favourite on Jermaine Jenas but the fact you call it soccer and we call it football set me thinking.
How many other phrases around this sport are different in the USA. Any you can list would certainly help my marketing efforts.
As far as soccer goes, that's the biggest one. There is the difference between American football, Australian-rules football and soccer, though. All three are football, all three are different games.
Thats the only two i no of unless its a slang word.As a tottenham hotspur fan i say spurs is the real name for football lol
It always seem strange to me that Americans love to use words and phrases that are so inappropriate. Using football for a sport in which the foot hardly ever meets the ball is one example, as is "touchdown" when the ball is NOT touched down!
I suppose you could add "bathroom and "restroom" to the list. What on earth is wrong with "toilet" or "lavatory" (although to be strictly accurate, those are both euphemisms as well)?
However, to answer your question as regards football (i.e. soccer), I have seen references to "the eighteen" for the penalty area and "zone defence" (whatever that is!)
I would say soccer and at the risk of repeating the why, I will invite you to my Hub "Sporting Unity: Achieving World Peace Through Athletics" to find out. It's an interesting concenpt I think you will either love or hate.

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?
