Perhaps I’ve been stowing away in a trench my entire life, however the if I’m not mistaken, your form of the game “football” prevalently included utilizing your HANDS to move the ball around – NOT YOUR FEET. That would be called HANDBALL.
Obviously with the inordinate utilization of capitals in that past passage, I’m really enthusiastic about this subject – like some other cliché Brit.
Here in England, there is nothing more disliked than calling football, ‘soccer’. It will without a doubt go down about and in addition slapping the ruler in the face amid her broadcast Christmas day discourse or shouting “Master Voldemort” as loud as possible on the grounds of Hogwarts.

The expression “mate” is normally used to portray a dear companion or some individual we get a kick out of the chance to hang out with.
‘No doubt I’m simply going out with my mates today’
‘It’s cool, we’re only mates’
We say it constantly, maybe an excessive amount of. In the event that you’ve anticipating packing a British gentleman, odds are you will run over this word a thousand times each day, so be arranged to put resources into some extremely advanced ear plugs. Keep in mind! in the event that he lets you know he’s “set for see his “mates” this evening”, rest guaranteed he’s not undermining you!
