Did you know that only Americans and Canadians call football as soccer? Despite these differences in terms, the game stays relatively the same. According to history, the game entered the United States of America through New Orleans and was brought about by the English, Irish, Scottish, Italian, and German immigrants who taught the game to the locals. Soccer, or association football, as the rest of the world called it, is a lot more popular in Europe. This is true especially in England, where games were played as far back as the medieval times, simply being described as "kicking ball games" from 1280.
Association football is the most watched and most played sport on earth and as such, a wide variety of leagues can be found in many different countries, especially in European ones. In fact, the world's first football club, the English Sheffield Football Club, was founded in a European country back in 1857! The sport has grown so much in popularity that plenty of video games and apps have been released to cater to a wider range of audiences and fans. One of the most watched European football leagues is the Serie A, Italy's top professional football league, which consists of 20 of the country's top-ranked teams.
