How to say 'football' in Spanish? How does it differ from soccer?

In Spanish, 'football' is referred to as 'fĂștbol'. This might seem a bit confusing for some as in the U.S., 'fĂștbol' is associated with what we call 'soccer'. However, the rest of the world, including Spanish-speaking countries, use 'fĂștbol' to mean what we in the States call 'football'. It's a simple linguistic difference based on regional variations of the sport.
