Football does not refer to how the ball is propelled but it is a team field sport played on "Foot" with the object of putting the ball into the oponents goaland not on Horseback as opposed to Polo, the elitists sport. The original game of football played in England involved all able bodied men of opposing villages trying to get the ball into their opponents village by any means.

 

They also carry the ball a lot in Rugby Football League, Rugby Football Union and Aussie Rules Football but they are all still recognised codes of football the same as American Football is. As for the word "Soccer" it is not an Americanism it is derived from Association Football and the term was first used in the UK.
