Question Soccer or Football?

What do you call it: soccer or football?

I'm half German and half English so I should call it Football, but I've grown up calling it soccer. I don't think that's right, though, and I'm thinking of changing what I call it.

Soccer is Soccer, football is football.

The Britts are just jealous because our 'football' (that is American Football) is better than the European league..

I voted footbal because that actually what its called even though I've been calling is soccer or calcio my whole life. The word soccer is actually a slang abbreviation for Association Football. Dont ask how I know that.
