I just realized Garrincha is listed twice but don't know enough about him to combine the two.

Isn't the long list of "famous players" rather clunky? Would it be better creating a character tab and using that instead?

I was thinking splitting it up into forwards / midfielders / defenders / keepers myself. Or possibly by nation / region.

As said in the archived discussion, the first paragraph seems to be mostly a Take That at American Football. While I actually don't like that sport much, am I the only one who thinks calling this page the Beautiful Game is a bit much, and that the first paragraph be toned down?

Not to mention it's plain not true. In Australia and New Zealand it's usually "soccer" (although no longer officially so) - in Australia, "going to the footy" could refer to any one of at least four sports.

Well it's now been changed. The Beautiful Game actually is a name for Association Football/Soccer, so there's no problem with that name.

Query: Do women's leagues exist in football (soccer)?
