11 best soccer games and European football games for Android

Apps – Android Authority

European football (or soccer as it’s known in the states) is one of the most popular sports in the world. There are hundreds of leagues, thousands of teams, and tens of thousands of players. It’s a phenomenon, really. There are a ton of soccer apps. However, like most sports, the mobile gaming side of things isn’t great. There are a few gems, though. Most soccer (football) games either let you play on the field with your favorite players or sim the game and make you the manager. We have a nice sprinkling of both. Here are the best soccer games and European football games for Android!

New Star Manager and SEGA Pocket Club Manager are honorable mentions for this list.

Final Kick 2020

Price: Free to play

Final Kick 2020 is a simple soccer game with an arcade feel. It lets you play a shootout over and over again. Your goal is to score goals, obviously. The game features decent graphics, offline tournaments, online multiplayer, weekly tournaments, and simple controls. There isn’t a whole lot to this one. However, that is part of its charm. It’s good for killing a few minutes, although the tournaments can take a while to finish. It is a freemium and that’s probably the worst part about it.

Football Manager 2021

Price: </strong$8.99 with in-app purchases

Football Manager 2021 is SEGA’s latest entrant in the popular soccer manager franchise. Players manage a soccer team and face off against opponents across 60 leagues in 24 countries. You’ll be responsible for things like player bonds to encourage better play, motivate your players to do better, and make a winning team. The base mechanics are the same from year to year with a varying amount of polish and fixes from the previous year. There is more than enough content here to last you until next year’s iteration comes out. It’s also free on Google Play Pass if you use it.

Head Soccer La Liga 2020

Price: Free to play

Head Socer La Liga is the official soccer game of, well, La Liga in Spain. It’s a fun little arcade game. Two players (or one player versus AI) square off in a one-on-one match. It plays a little bit like pong, but in a good way. It features real players, a collection and upgrade mechanic, and some power ups to help out. The game play is super simple. This is another decent game for killing a few minutes. It’s also a freemium game, but we expected that.

Dream League Soccer

Price: Free to play

Dream League Soccer 2019 is one of the bigger soccer games on mobile. It features full teams, complete games, and a full field of action. The front of the game is a sim. You build a team, make them good, and win championships. However, you can also play actual soccer with the team you made. The graphics and controls aren’t half bad either. That puts it in the upper echelon of soccer games. It also features six divisions, Google Play Games achievements, saves, and leaderboards, and more. This one is surprisingly good, even for a freemium game.

eFootball PES 2021

Price: Free to play

eFootball PES 2021 is FIFA’s biggest competitor on mobile. Many believe it to be a better game as well. The game features good graphics, outstanding mechanics and controls, a team building mechanic, online multiplayer, local multiplayer, and more. FIFA has more stuff to do, but PES is a funner game to play. That should help most people make the right choice for them. PES 2018 is also a freemium game and that will get in the way eventually. Until then, this is an outstanding soccer game.

FIFA Soccer

Price: Free to play

FIFA Soccer is arguably the most popular soccer game on mobile. Of course, that means it’s a shameless cash grab by EA Sports! There are some likable things about the game, much like their other sports offerings. It has outstanding graphics, decent mechanics, and a lot of content. That includes a single-player campaign mode, online PvP, online leagues, players from over 550 teams, and more. It has more content than just about any other game in the genre. However, its freemium tactics are a little aggressive for our taste. Enjoy, but tread carefully.

Kevin Tom’s Football Manager

Price: $3.49 + $0.99

Kevin Tom’s Football Manager is a neat little soccer simulator. The graphics won’t win any awards. It’s basically stick figures playing on a field and kicking four or five pixels around. However, the game is much deeper than that. You pick a team, buy and sell your players, use some strategy, and try to win everything. There are four divisions, various tournaments, and more. It’s a port of an old C64 game, and the graphics reflect that. It’s a nice retro football manager with some nostalgic value for older football fans. The game runs for $3.49 and you get the whole game for that.

Rumble Stars

Price: Free to play

Rumble Stars is one of the newer soccer games on the list. It’s an arcade soccer (football) game with colorful graphics, ridiculous abilities, and animals. The game features PvP online game play with tons of characters and customizations. You also get clubs, various leagues and other competitive challenges, and you can even watch game streamers in the game itself. This one requires a network connection, but its arcade goofiness takes the edge off of the competitive aspects of the game. It’s not bad if you want to just play to have fun.

Soccer Manager 2020

Price: Free to play

Soccer Manager 2020 is one of the newer games in the genre. This one is a management simulator. You basically run your own football team. You can choose between 800 teams across 33 countries and build them up to be champions. The game features decent graphics, full game simulations, and more. Your decisions affect things like how much fans like you. It’s a decent overall experience is a good amount of depth. It has a few bugs here and there and some players dislike some of the execution, but by and large people seem to enjoy it.

Soccer Star 2021

Price: Free to play

Soccer Star 2020 is a fun soccer game. However, it skews closer to average than it does to great. It’s built for mobile. That means there are a ton of players and items to collect. The game starts out easy enough. The controls are simple to learn and the graphics are pretty good. However, the game gets difficult over time unless you take advantage of the freemium mechanics. Still, it’s a fun game, at least for a little while. It’s nowhere near as good as some of these other games, but it’s definitely better than most others.

World Soccer League

Price: Free to play

World Soccer League is a bit of a dark horse on this list. It’s better than most soccer games. However, it doesn’t have the mass reception of games like FIFA or PES. The game features full soccer games, around 120 teams, 2,000 players, four game modes, achievements, leaderboards, and support for 15 languages. The mechanics are simple enough, even if they are a bit slow and the graphics are above average in this genre. It’s a freemium game because of course it is. However, that’s about the worst thing about it.
