America calls it soccer. The rest of the world calls it football — or futbol, or fútbol, or fussball...

It's the game in which the goalie is the only player allowed to catch the ball, while everyone else furiously kicks with feet, knees...their heads...(no helmets, no shoulder pads, no refrigerator-sized players!) It ultimately results in a lightning fast chase so exciting that the attention of the whole world is completely captured.

Names like David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo,and Wayne Rooney are just the beginning of getting to know what great football means to its millions of fans.

Doubt it? Visit any city in the world outside of the USA when the final game of the World Cup is played every four years. Not a soul on the street or a car on the road...everyone is inside watching football!
