    Default ¿Football es fútbol?

    Dado que hay diferencias en el desarrollo del juego, cuando no tengo mucho contexto, no sé si corresponde dejar "football" en una traducción al español.

    ¿Qué harían ustedes?

    Fútbol y balonpié son las dos formas que recibe el deporte en español.

    Te recomendaría que uses la primera, que es la forma más similar a football y que es ampliamente utilizada en el español.

    In my opinion, football refers to American football or fútbol americano. (Fútbol is called soccer in the U.S.)

    So if I were translating "football" I would call it "fútbol americano"...unless I KNEW it was a reference to soccer or fútbol.

    That's precisely my point!

    So, when context is not clear, "football" is not "fútbol" but "fútbol americano".

    Thank you very much!

    Hola a todos!

    les dejo una definicion de Football,

    Football refers to a number of sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot to score a goal.

    Saludos!

    2.the ball used in any of these games or their variants

    3.a problem, issue, etc, that is continually passed from one group or person to another and treated as a pretext for argument instead of being resolved: he accused the government of using the strike as a political football

    Estefaniar, do you mean the third definition..."political football"? That's a fairly common phrase in the U.S. It's a little like "a hot potato"...like a controversial subject that no one wants to address.

    "pasarse la pelota de uno a otro"

    Uno le pasa la pelota (el problema) a otro. Este se la pasa a su compañero, que se la pasa a otro sector... y así indefinidamente.

    Nadie mete el gol, jejeje.

    ¡Una expresión muy visual, como un partido!
