As is self-evident, the map above shows what people across the globe call the sport that we ignorant North Americans know as "soccer." Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and a couple other nations join the U.S. in our refusal to conform to the norms of the rest of the world; collectively, we outnumber the other etymologies, which is nice. "Calcio"? SMH, Italy.
