The thing is the word "soccer", while used in North America and associated with it nowadays, actually originated in Oxford at the very beginning of football (late 19th century). It was a common phenomenon there at the time and many of these words are still used today:

association (football): soccer
rugby: rugger
breakfast: brekker(s)
nutcase: nutter
five/ten pounds: fiver/tenner

We might even have a case in Maltese, though I'm not entirely sure it's related: gowler (goalkeeper -> goaler -> gowler). It is worth noting the word "gowler", while seemingly English, is in fact Maltese through and through. It is not used elsewhere in the English-speaking world, except to refer to GKs in ice hockey.

Considering all this, the image of a teletubby with a US flag is appropriate because teletubbies are British. :lol:

@12: couldn't see it on my phone either, must be a file type unsupported by iOS, but it works on my PC.

Yes you could also throw acid in your eyes, but I wouldn't suggest it either.

How so? I mean, yeah, nothing wrong with "whitening" as it's describing what it does... But removing "fair" is fair...
