I am Greek and football/soccer is huge here. We are familiar with the distinction the Americans do and know that when football is mentioned in a european text, it means the same as soccer in american text.

In your case, though, since noone knows if the text is american or european, I'd say the safest bet is Soccer.

I bought Soccer Tactics World and never had an issue or confusion about what it represents.

I'd like to test this game in Essen and possibly buy it

Greek images say the equal to Football. English images say Football. When we see an image that says 'Football' and we don't know where it's from, there could be confusion.

But when we see Soccer, we know it's American and means 'Football'.

'Football/Soccer' looks reduntant and ugly to me. My suggestion is that you only use Soccer
