Football frenzy: 6 fun soccer games that aren't FIFA 16 (Android and iOS)
Whether you call it soccer or football, it is the world's most popular sport. It is practiced by 250 million players in over 200 nations and enjoyed by an even greater number of fans. Sure, the game might be little more than two teams of 11 players kicking a ball around, but there's something captivating about it, something that makes you want to watch it and play it, something that makes you want to... download a soccer game onto your mobile device. 

When it comes to soccer games, there's one name that springs to mind right away – FIFA 16. It is a great soccer simulator, there's no denying that, but it just might not be everyone's cup of tea. Some might see it as too complicated, others may feel like playing a soccer game that's more casual and less engaging. So we did a little research of our own. The good news is that the App Store and Play Store are full of soccer games – soccer games that aren't like EA Sports' title in gameplay, but are tons of fun nonetheless. Below we have 6 of the best among them.

New star soccer > all. Shame that with the freemium upgrade it's not that fun anymore...

I like that Pocket League Story.. even if their graphic is bad, football movement is weird and almost no skill, player name full of pun, but I like the gameplay (actually I just like because kairosoft make this one, and I play lots of game from that dev o.O )
