I think you meant to say that it was a spiffing penalty… :japanese_ogre:

‘Soccer’ was the original British term used for the sport, it was used for about 20 years before football was.

Nice story but not true :stuck_out_tongue: The modern game traces its origins to 1863 when the Laws of the Game were originally codified in England by the football association.

The word “soccer” originated as an Oxford “-er” slang abbreviation of “association”, and is credited to late nineteenth century English footballer, Charles Wreford-Brown.

The name football is heard many many years before this as well.

Edit - so only the toffs called it soccer and they don’t usually understand the game :joy:
