Sports fans across the world are currently enjoying the World Cup. Well, most fans that haven’t had their games changed by bad refs.
The game of soccer, as I know it, is known around most of the world by its more appropriate title, football, which has led to some confusion by North American sports fans. We have our own football over here and it refers to hard hitting teams with high scoring games and not to the sport being highlighted in South Africa at the moment. This is how we see soccer.
To help clarify the differences, former Monty Python member John Cleese gives us an explanation.
Whatever your view on the terminology of “football”, at least ours has video review. Sorry England. The US team knows how it feels to have bad refs not call goals.
