What do you call it: Football or Soccer?

I know in the United States (America) people call it soccer. But in every other country, besides the U.S., calls it football or futbol. I prefer calling it football because it makes more sense to me, you know, because the players are kicking the ball with their foot. But American football is used with their hands. It's confusing. I know in other countries American Football is called Rugby. The only difference is that they don't use helmets or any protection. That must be painful. :) I probably would get a lot of dislikes if there was a dislike feature. Hehe. :) So what do you call it? Football or Soccer?

Only Americans call it soccer because they "American Football" that doesn't even use the foot.... I rather call it Hand egg,

American Football and Rugby is two different sports with totally different rules and both are played here in America. Now soccer and football (futbol) have the same rules.

I prefer to call it Football, but since I live in the US, I also use the word Soccer very often.

I know they are different, but they are similar. I don't get why the U.S calls it soccer if it already had a name for it, do you know what I mean? Lol :) I live in the U.S. but have been confused why American Football is called football when it doesn't involve a foot. Haha.

Me too. I use both terms. I say football to my family, because that's what they use, and soccer. :)
