"Soccer" in British English I always thought that the word "soccer" is used in the U.S. only. However, recently I was looking through the English textbook, which was published in London and was surprised by the fact that the authors have always used this word in their book. Does this mean that americanisms are gradually substituting traditional British words in the UK?

I think this word originated some 500 years back in England.The word was 'brought' to America some 200 years back.These days in Asia and Europe hardly people use the word soccer - for it is called football nowadays.
