I'm American, but I call it football lol. Soccer just sounds weird imo.
I've only spoken to Americans a couple of times, and only once about soccer, but I recall a friend of mine calling it "football" (because we call it that, obviously) which resulted in a lot of confusion. The standard issue soccer/football nomenclature debate broke out, bla bla, we wasted about an hour on the pointless argument.
It's better to just call it soccer in front of American peeps, it saves you a whole lot of boring discussion.
