Why are Latin America and Western Europe so good at football?

Because there are a lot of people playing there from a very young age. It doesn't take a lot of equipment or money to play. Also, it's the most popular sport; there isn't a lot of dilution from people going to other sports.

It is the primary sport for most of the countries in those areas. That means the best athletes end up playing soccer. That is unlike the US where top athletes end up in football or basketball.
Also consider that soccer is a simple and cheap sport to play as a child regardless of how much money your family or city has.
