Why do some people/countries call it soccer and not football? TO AVOID CONFUSION. Now shutup about it.

The answer to that is well known - rugby is a spinoff from football.

Rugby is never called football, though, so it's not the same situation as American football. Strictly speaking it`s Rugby rules football, but it`s never called that either. Rugby or (rarely) rugby football, but never just football.
