Sorry, I didn't know it was so personally important for you that the name is soccer. As a german I completely think football is the natural name, as we always called it Fußball, which would be translated football word for word. But if you americans prefer to call that to some sport where you mostly carry around a ball instead of kicking it, so be it. But be prepared to be made fun of, which I do all the thread.
Now I go to fry some frenchmen to have something to eat alongside my hamburger - which is someone from hamburg....
I think football is the wrong name for Soccer and kickball would make more since if you want to get literal.The name does not matter though as it has been called football here for years and Soccer is what we call the Euro version of football.
