MOSCOW — England might have gone out of the World Cup in the latest of a litany of historical heartbreaks but thankfully its fans still have one thing up its sleeve — the ability to make fun of Americans.

Because, while football might not be coming home this summer after all, gosh, at least Brits call the sport by its proper name: Football.

Everyone associated with the beautiful game in the United States runs a constant gauntlet that could see them targeted by mean-spirited Brits at any moment. Even Serena Williams, enjoying the thrills of the World Cup’s closing stages was sharply rebuked on social media for daring to use the dreaded “s” word.

Silly Americans, why do they call it soccer?

Let’s just hang on a minute here and refer the matter to the video assistant referee, or at least to the scrutiny of sporting and grammatical history. Is the matter as simple as the U.S., having long ago already adopted the word “football” for its wildly popular national pursuit that involves touchdowns and tailgating and (formerly) Tim Tebow, being forced to come up with another word for the round ball version?

After all, England was so amused by soccer’s American use that before the intrepid Yanks took on the boys from over the pond in 2010 a London newspaper urged its team to “win the soccerball World Series.”

“Get the name right, lads,” a group of good-natured England fans told some American visitors on a train from Saint Petersburg to Moscow earlier this week. “It’s not saah-cer, it’s football.”

Here, though, is where England learns that its snooty jibes are as misguided as its attempts to tackle Luka Modric and his Croatian chums in Wednesday’s semifinal.

Because, ouch, the word soccer isn’t a lazy American creation of convenience. It is as English as Worcestershire sauce, quaint pubs, talking about the weather, getting eliminated from soc…football tournaments and absurd places named Chipping Sodbury and Scratchy Bottom. Yes, those villages really exist and people actually live there.
