So, you think you’re a soccer expert? Do you know what pasuckquakkohwog means? American folklore tells us that pilgrims who settled at Plymouth Rock met Native Americans who played pasuckquakkohwog, an early form of football.

Now, you’re probably wondering what football has to do with soccer. In most of the world, soccer is called “football,” but in the U.S., football is a totally different game. According to a survey by Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), 240 million people play football (soccer) in more than 200 countries. That would make football (soccer) a bigger sport than baseball, basketball and American football combined!

No matter what they call it, people on almost every continent play and love the same game, and whether or not you play soccer, consider yourself a soccer expert!
