What is called football by most of the rest of the world, including UK English speakers, is known as soccer or European football in the USA and Canada.
One of the best-known differences between British and American English is the fact that the sport known as football in Great Britain is usually called soccer in the United States. Because the sport originated in England, it is often assumed that soccer is an Americanism. In fact, the word is thoroughly British in origin.
England and Soccer. Former English colonies like Ireland, Australia, South Africa, and others call the UK’s football soccer instead. The reason is that the term soccer was actually more popular than football before the 70s in England. The switch to football became acceptable as football was viewed as an American term that was frowned upon. Former English colonies also happen to have their own version of football, which differs from the US and UK’s version.
