As the US men’s national team took part in its first World Cup since Brazil in 2014, the chants from the US fans raised eyebrows.

On Monday night, when the Stars and Stripes played Wales, fans chanted “This is called football! It’s called football!” a riff on the US insistence on using its own name for the game nearly everyone calls football.

A clip former NFL player Chad Ochocinco Johnson led a chant posted to his TikTok account Fox Soccer has nearly 700,000 views, although some football fans are not feeling it.

“USA should be banned from the World Cup,” one commenter said under the video.

“Ask them what FIFA means,” said another, referring to soccer’s governing body the Federation Internationale de Football Association.

While their chants may not win them any favours, US fans have had something to cheer about in the World Cup so far.

In their Group B opener against Wales at the Ahmed Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, the young US squad took an early lead through Timothy Weah’s goal, although veteran striker Gareth Bale later equalized with a penalty for the Dragons.

US fans aren’t the only ones playing out the great “football” versus “soccer” debate.

Ad campaigns from FritoLay featuring football greats like Mia Hamm, David Beckham and Brandi Chastain, as well as other athletes such as former NFL player Peyton Manning featured athletes debating the true name for the beautiful game.
