Soccer is a very american term. I think we should stick to voetbal =football

I am English and trying to learn Dutch. In Dutch they say voetbal. In English we say football. Why will the answer only accept soccer?

There is football and American Rugby. I don't know what soccer is.

    …and at least two times 6 other players. A match is stopped if one of the teams has less than 7 players on the pitch.

    For those not very familiar with football: a normal match is played with 11 players per team. :)
