    Well, I would imagine as English is more common WorldWide than Spanish (Futbol) and German (fusbal). Then I would say our spelling of the word is more common.

    But i don't mind futbol, fusbal, voetbal (Dutch), futebol (Portuguese) or calcio (Italian) or anything as, as these are just football in another language... They're stall calling it football... Just not in English.

    The term soccer is not like that.

    Don't care what it is called as long as I don't hear the word Soccer.
