I would ask someone this in person and get them to explain it.

Football -  is what we call the 'beautiful game' in England and  also in most of the world, including Europe, South America, Africa and Asia and Australia.  It's a game of great skill played by two sides of 11 players for two periods of 45 minutes. I understand that it gets the name 'soccer' as an abbreviation of the words association football.

American football is another ball game entirely, and I'm sorry to say I know nothing about it, except that it looks a bit like rugby football but with more protective clothing!

American Football is fun also. Soccer ( football ) is catching on in the U.S. so fast, you wouldn't believe it.

To expand on the answer supplied by Kathryn, the word soccer was coined in Great Britain(!) to differentiate it from the other football - rugby.

I think it is aside, from the name
