Coupled with their team’s humiliating exit from the World Cup it might be another rude awakening to the Brits that soccer isn’t an American term, it is actually an English one. And it isn’t some modern fad that shows disrespect to the world’s most popular sport, it dates back to the earliest days of the game’s professional history.
I actually already knew this (although I admittedly haven't know it for very long ) .
I'll always call it football, regardless
"Britain" didn't have a team in the world cup. England did. Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales didn't qualify, in fact some people from these countries weren't in support of England (and why should they be), in fact there were t-shirts printed saying "Anyone But England" on them So collectively "the Brits" couldn't give a fuck.Coupled with their team’s humiliating exit from the World Cup it might be another rude awakening to the Brits...
