World Cup Brings Football vs. Futbol Debate


There is a good chance you have caught a little World Cup action over the last couple weeks. While maybe you’ve gained a greater appreciation for the game, there is little doubt you’re ready to declare soccer the real football.

The video below pokes a little fun at both sides of the football/futbol debate – and there’s an Ndamukong Suh image at the end.

From The Whistle:

We turned to our resident British Commentator, Anthony Richardson, to settle this debate once and for all – but we need your help!
