Soccer = football (but not rugby or American football).

NOUN: A game played on a rectangular field with net goals at either end in which two teams of 11 players each try to drive a ball into the other's goal by kicking, heading, or using any part of the body except the arms and hands. The goalie is the only player who may touch or move the ball with the arms or hands.
ETYMOLOGY: From alteration of 'assoc.', abbreviation of 'association football'.
