It's a sport where you can only touch the ball with your foot, except the goalkeeper or the opposite team of whoever kicks it out of the field.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_(word)#Etymology

Although the accepted etymology of the word football, or "foot ball", originated in reference to the action of a foot kicking a ball, this may be a false etymology. An alternative explanation has it that the word originally referred to a variety of games in medieval Europe, which were played on foot.[5] These sports were usually played by peasants, as opposed to the horse-riding sports more often enjoyed by aristocrats. In some cases, the word has been applied to games which involved carrying a ball and specifically banned kicking. For example, the English writer William Hone, writing in 1825 or 1826, quotes the social commentator Sir Frederick Morton Eden, regarding a game – which Hone refers to as "Foot-Ball" – played in the parish of Scone, Perthshire:

The game was this: he who at any time got the ball into his hands, run [sic] with it till overtaken by one of the opposite part; and then, if he could shake himself loose from those on the opposite side who seized him, he run on; if not, he threw the ball from him, unless it was wrested from him by the other party, but no person was allowed to kick it.[6] [Emphasis added.]

16

u/bigpeechtea 7d ago

Another fun fact: the term “Soccer” originated from Oxford, slang for Association Football, which is the game as we know it today and is also derived from the game of football you shared.

People forget that Rugby, SOCCER, and American football all came from the same sport and were all three originally very similar to each other. God forbid the games evolve.

Theres irony in people joking that others are dumb for calling it football, because the names not literal enough for them…

Fun fact: in most of Ireland we refer to the sport as "soccer" as well, as when you say "football" in Ireland you're usually referring to the Irish sport "Gaelic Football", which is more widely played here.

People always assume Americans when they hear the term soccer, I don't think many know that it's not exclusive to them.

u/dunstbin 7d ago

And Gaelic, Australian, American, Rugby, etc are all called "football" because they're played on foot. This was to distinguish them from sports played on horse by the wealthy.

36

u/FuzzyMcBitty 8d ago

Word’s origin is English, though. Goes back to when they were calling it Association Football in order to distinguish it from other variants (rugby football or gridiron football) which have since dropped the “football” part. Except for Americans, who probably kept the old name to avoid confusion.

54

u/Scary_Investigator 8d ago

Literally this. People love to shit on Americans (I'm Canadian and we call it soccer here too lol) for being ignorant of the world and being self obsessed... But then can't understand why someone from a different part of the world would call something by a different name.

Like if it's called Soccer you literally cannot mistake it for anything else, even if you don't call it that.

u/5510 7d ago edited 7d ago All-Seeing Upvote

I think most native English speakers actually call it soccer. Not just the US, but also Canada, Australia, South Africa, and apparently mixed use in Ireland and New Zealand. (On the other hand, most non native speakers say “football”).

They try and spin it as if “only the ignorant arrogant Americans call it soccer”… even though, for example, the 2010 World Cup final (in South Africa) was literally held in a stadium called “soccer city.” Or that the Australian mens national team is commonly referred to as “the soccerroos.”

Furthermore, Soccer is OBJECTIVELY a more specific word. Even people who hate the word know exactly what it means. But in an international space, “football”can cause confusion.

Because there are actually at least 5 different types of football. Association football (soccer), rugby football, Gaelic football American football and Aussie rules football. Now, people can call their favorite variety “football” for short if they want… but it’s pretty arrogant for people to insist that everybody else also use the word “football” only to refer to their favorite variety.

And nobody freaks out when you say “cell phone” instead of “mobile phone,” for example. Or pretty much any other difference between British English and American English. But for some reason, they lose their minds over soccer… which is funny because it’s actually originally a British word (and they still have TV shows like Soccer AM and Soccer Saturday…).


Edit: it’s also worth mentioning that people love to talk about how association football is the most popular sport in the world, and that it’s “the world’s game.” That’s true, but surely that means it’s not surprising that people all around the world might have different local terms for it (or for different things within it… lots of countries have different slang for things that can happen on a soccer field, or a soccer pitch… depending on your country). The fact that people talk about association football in so many languages, and so many dialects within those languages, is to be expected for the “world’s game.”

She is obviously not standing there to be a wall. Doesn't look like it at all. She's probably expecting a cross to the direction she's moving, which is probably what all other players thought in that situation as well. So blaming this on her is ridiculous. She also almost intercepted that pass too... very small margin between intercepting that and having this awesome back heel goal.

However what we should really be doing is saying men’s football. You see it right across the Olympics and such. It’s not ‘hockey’ and ‘women’s hockey’ or ‘luge’ and ‘women’s luge’, it’s just ‘mens tennis’ and ‘women’s tennis’.

In slo mo it looks bad, but she didn't expect the kicker to kick at her, and instead around her, so she tried to predict where the shot was going to go, but the kicker got lucky, and the blocker looked like a fool.

i cant emphasise how important it is to NOT move when you are in the wall, standing still and jumping is the only thing you can do that will maximise the chances of not conceding, the first one is very important because that free kick was actually the game winning goal which knocked the opposing team out of the champions league

This is an insanely mediocre goal. Pretty much everyone I’ve ever played with at school has pulled this off at some point

lmao ok bro. I'm sure everyone you've ever played with at school has scored a backheel flick straight from a direct free kick....

sure bro... sure...

edit: literally 20 seconds ago Darwin just scored a very similar goal against Fulham hahahahahahahahaha

aaaaaand some ginger cow has blocked me for saying this is an impressive goal BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

who the fuck blocks people on reddit?

The fact that you don't believe him makes it even funnier.

He's not bragging about himself or people at his school. This is genuinely just not that crazy of a goal to make

The defender making an inexcusable mistake doesnt make the attackers redirection any less amazing.

Two things can be true. A lot of amazing sports plays are the result of the opponent messing up. Isnt this obvious? How many people could volley that out of the air into the net and not be total luck

Why did the first woman try to run away and do a trick shot? She was in front of the ball

Everyone talking about the defender jumping out of the way, nobody talking about how it was a knuckler with no spin that faked her out.

Buncha dbags in this thread. It’s a sick goal, the fuck is wrong with y’all?

Every display of women's skill (in any field) is a poke in the eye of misogyny; keep it up, sisters!

How many yards per ounce was that soccer ball going? I'm guessing five-to-ma-toes.

Fuck that was clean. Such a pure hit and the timing on that flick was ridiculous

u/Basic_Nobody_718 8d ago

Amazingly cowardly defender though jumping away instead of standing put and taking the effing ball. As a former player( guy) just cover the small balls/tuck ur chin and take the big ball or get towel whipped in the changing room later... 😁

That was an incredible goal by ANY standards, but I'm glad it's being highlighted here for the women's game (I saw a lot of comments about the recent England win of "yes, but it's not the same standard, is it?")

I'm normally someone who would have argued "is it really necessary to comment on gender when it is just a great goal", but in this circumstance, it's important to put this in the face of critics.

In this thread, tons of people who have heard about this sport pretending they are experts and saying how bad the defender is because they didn't stand still. You know, because they heard there's this thing called a wall and defenders are always in the wall and it's their job to be in the wall. Their only job.

How about recognizing that you are clueless about the sport and just admire the skill of the player scoring the goal?
