Thimbro says:

What in the world lol

wphashan says:


what a crappy name lol

myoujin says:

Bola = ball in malay language


Viipottaja says:

And Portuguese

SammyD97 says:

Funny enough it means ball in a lot of languages. Hmm...

malay is made up of different languages, soif you wish to talk about real origin you can cross that one off the list.

wphashan says:

meh... Θ_Θ

Eas195 says:

...and Indonesian.

Disney bola Soccer. Main bola cricket. :D

Aashish13 says:

kullalishka says:

sqlchicken says:

Can you play single player offline? Fifa one you can't which is annoying.

terrokkinit says:

You mean futbol? ;) or soccer?

Wael Hasno says:

Soccer is an idiotic term used by Americans. Everytime you say "soccer" you make an idiot of yourself. Might as well start calling Americans "Yanks". After all, they are not the real Americans.

That's harsh. Unless foreigners who say "Munich" are idiots because they don't say Münschen like the locals? There already was a popular game called football in North America when soccer came here. The Toronto Argonauts is the world's oldest gridiron-style football team, as they've been around since 1873. Can't we all just get along?

Also, why did UK-based Sensible Software make a popular (borderline legendary in the '90s) game for the European market called "Sensible Soccer" if only idiots use the term? FWIW, I do try to use the term "footy" when appropriate.

Bring back Kick Off...

You made me curious, so I looked it up. Both "soccer" and "football" are terms that originate from the UK, and soccer is the older of the two terms by about 18 years. Soccer was what the upper classes called it, football what the middle and lower classes called it. In different parts of the world one term stuck, the other term stuck in other parts of the world. So much for your insults. I await your apology. :-P

Pippa Pip says:

I think the point is, the majority of people in the world call it football.

Actually, the majority of countries with English as the national language call it soccer.

Soccer is short for a"soc"iation football, its official name. "Football" is a group of sports in which the ball is advanced and scored ON foot, not necessarily by a foot. In addition to association football and gridiron football, there is also Gaelic football, rugby football, and Aussie rules football.

btbam91 says:

Typo in the title. Says football when the game is soccer.

That's why USA lost

mango.lover says:

+1020. That, and their ridiculous polo shirts.

Wael Hasno says:

Go back to celebrating the 4th of July, you're too stupid to understand this article.

Tjalsma says:

Man has WPC went downhill. I miss the good old days where insults were not thrown out like nothing. What a waste of time. Just bitching and moaning and complaining and name calling and whining and crying.

2tomtom says:

+ 920, seen better comments on this subject at infants school!

dov1978 says:

Football..not soccer. Not to be confused with that game played with your hands yet is called football?

⤴ 200% agree! Better named bola rather than soccer lol

Gridiron football is also played with feet. Haters are gonna hate, I guess. Gridiron football grew out of rugby, hence the use of the hands as well as the feet.

I'm Canadian, and we bristle at people calling our favourite sport "ice hockey" when it should be the default form of "hockey" in our opinion. So I absolutely get your comment. That said, what would you prefer we have done when we already had a sport in North America called that?

Turns out soccer is the original, and arguably most correct term. It's certainly the clearest.

DJCBS says:

Soccer has never been vastly used in Europe. Just because the name was created in England, that means nothing. Because EVERYTHING that dates that far back was created in England.

Also, in other languages, the term is "football" too. Futebol (PT and BR), Fútbol (ES), Football (EN and FR), Fußball (GER) etc.

Only 'muricans (and sometimes Australians and Canadians) call it soccer instead of football because 'muricans - with the same logic that renegades a temperature measurement system that goes 0-100 and replaces it with one that goes 32-212 - call "FOOTball" to something they play with their HANDS (and that in Europe is called American Rugby.)

Soccer clearly was the more common term in Europe at some point because it is believed to predate the term football by nearly two decades. And you say sometimes Canadians also call it soccer, but in fact Canadians call it this 99% of the time. It's the de facto term on this continent, the big league is even called Major League Soccer here. The term soccer was introduced to North America before the term football even existed, and it stuck. Just because the original term later died out in the UK does not make us wrong. You're proving to be as closed-mindedly jingoistic as any American I've ever spoken to, so congratulations on that I guess.

The word in other languages is purely a phonetic translation of "football", so there's no point in mentioning that. "Soccer" is derived from as"soc"iation football, its official name. You know the whole name for rugby is rugby football? That, along with gridiron (a.k.a. American) football, Aussie rules football, and Gaelic football, uses the hands more than the feet. "Football" refers a group of sports in which the ball is advanced and scored ON foot, not by a foot.
You might want to check out South Africa and New Zealand too. It's all on Wikipedia and cited, if you're interested.
Now go ahead, resort to calling gridiron football for pansies because they use pads. I'm waiting.

myoujin says:

Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Need to change to FISA. =D

lemonsteveo says:

I'm from the UK, but can people stop having this stupid argument?  Who cares if it's football or soccer?  And USA actually did better than England to be honest who didn't even win a bloody single game.

But still why in the world it is 'bola' -ㅁ-?

Bola = ball in Portuguese. Portuguese is dominant language in Brazil. Brazil is hosting the World Cup. It all ties in, in a kind of cynical marketing way.

Pippa Pip says:

Point is, the majority of the world call the sport 'football'.

Even USA's have to admit, the actual term makes more sense for this sport than the rugby derivative they play in USA. That cannot be disputed.

It can be disputed, if you bothered to research it. Look up "names for association football" on Wikipedia. It's all cited.

You can also get FIFA instead

Thimbro says:

We got "soccer" from the Brits because they used the term for a short while. Why are you guys so mad?

hassan008091 says:

What's the difference between the full version of wp8.1 and the previewe????/

sip1995 says:

WordPress dropped the support for Windows Phone....

Jazmac says:

No loss there since their app never made the grade on WP. It sucks on IOS and andriod too.

dov1978 says:

I don't get mad at Americans calling it soccer, maybe a little when they try and correct us when the rest of the world mainly call it Football.

Onto another question though. Football is currently having it's biggest tournament The World Cup, named as such because teams from all over the world compete....obvious right? So why does Baseball have a World Series but only involve domestic American teams? Never understood that? :-)

sip1995 says:

Because Americans think that USA is the entire world....

Pippa Pip says:

Really? Is that true??

DJCBS says:

Because few people outside the USA give a rats-arse about baseball lol

sip1995 says:

Then I'm 1 o them.....BASEBALL FTW

gentrt says:

Ever been to Asia or central America

Pippa Pip says:

Yes. It's all football there.

They're implying that baseball is extremely popular in those places. At least East Asia, anyway.

dov1978 says:

And yes us Brits did indeed invent the word Soccer so only have ourselves to blame I guess

daelumia says:

Looks like Spartanball

gentrt says:

Simmer down! Association football and American football are great sports.

ralexand56 says:

Does it support joystick?

I want to play as Diana Ross and take a penalty against Daffy Duck.

lemonsteveo says:

Ok, since no one else is talking about the actual game, I'll just chime in a little - this game is absolute rubbish!  AI is completely bonkers - players just run around randomly, controls are frustrating and they don't always do what you want it to do.  It does not capture any of the excitement at all of playing football either.   Thank you Disney for supporting Windows, but this game is terrible.  Stick to FIFA in the store or play the real FIFA/Pro Evo on Xbox.
