I do agree. In fact soccer is the most popular sport in the world. No matter what the Americans say about it, it is realy a global sport. It's world cup is really engaging the 6 continents unlike rugby and american football. I think what's special about football is that it began in europe. By that time, europe had the strongest influence throughout the world. America is somehow isolated from the outer world. That's why most american sports remained american. As for the other sports (like basketball and volleyball), soccer is by far more popular. Maybe because it's much easier to be played anywhere. In poor countries, pchildren play soccer even in the streets. This can't be the case for volleyball and basketball as they both need special equipment (the ring and the net). As for soccer, any wall can be marked as a goal.

Actually I know nothing about cricket. Many people don't. India, Pakistan, England, Australia and maybe New Zealand. Are there any other countries playing cricket?? It is not even close to be a global sport, i think.

no buddy, you din't get the catch out of bein' the best game - its dat "after Olympics" - football(soccer) has got the maximum fans following - andas far as you sayin', that in many countries...there are no other sports to choose from - i don't agree in most of the Asians and esp. South-East Asia countries - its not even 5% playable as compared to western sides BUT you wil stil have fans in thousands and lacks, infact DIE-HARD fans supportin' for one or the country in world-cup and one or other clubs' in LEAGUES...anewais dis is in response to what I could make out of your discussion(which I felt wasn't clear enough), IF ANYTHIN' else you meant or points you wanna discuss THEN please let me know - I wil b honoured to do wid you - discuss that is... CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!

It's the most popular sport in the world. Besides here in the U.S., every nation loves it. It can be played almost anywhere. the rules are universal. I am new to Football. I only really see it during the World Cup. it is great. I also like the Olympics, football matches can bring long time enemeies onto a neutral cite, the football field.I remember when England met Argentina in the World Cup. That was great. I hope sometime real soon Soccer Fever comes to America.
