Soccer, or as the rest of the world calls it, football is one of the most popular sports in the world. The game has a huge following, and even the league matches attract millions of people.
The awesome soccer apps for Android can’t measure up to the real thing. But, they sure can replicate some of the feelings and passion. I’ve played soccer in high school (yeah, I’m surprised too), but now due to my medical laziness, I can only enjoy the sport from my bed.
Note: The best soccer apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy Note III smartphone. The apps and games worked well during the testing phase, and no problems were faced whatsoever. Some of the apps need an active internet connection to work properly.
1. New Star Soccer
This app ranks high because it can literally run on any Android device. All of your devices will be able to run this soccer game for Android with ease, from the extreme budget to high-end ones.
I’ll be honest here, the game has horrid graphics. They are not even 3D and look extremely retro. However, the gameplay is addictive and engaging as hell.
A few of my colleagues at the university started playing this game and boy they got addicted to it. They even spent their lunch time playing this game. This is because the game lets you live out your fantasy of becoming a soccer superstar. You start as a scrawny 16-year-old and make your way to the top.
2. Goal Live Scores
Want to know what is happening in the real world of soccer?
Do you need to know if your team won the match or not?
Then download this great looking soccer scoreboard app for Android and get all of the information you need.
The app has a simple interface that’s remarkably fast. The information provided is continually kept fresh and recent. One of the best things about this app is the amazing push notifications it provides.
Imagine being stuck in a meeting during a super important match is going on. Just turn on the notifications and your smartphone will buzz in your pocket when either team scores a goal.
If you prefer the real sport, then LiveScore will help you keep track of your favorite team. The app has a very clean and easy to understand interface. The well-designed layout allows the app to provide information just at a single glance.
There are details tucked inside too. If you want to know how a goal was scored, by whom, and when scored it, this soccer app for Android will help you find out. But that’s not all though, the app also provides you with scored of other sports as well. Think of it as a one-stop shop for all your score needs.
4. Soccer Stars
Soccer Stars is an interesting take on soccer. The game combines soccer with air hockey and makes for an entertaining game. This was a simple way of explaining the game but, there’s more to it than a mashup of two sports.
It combines the mechanics usually used in some of the best pool games for Android. You aim your “player”, select an angle, and release him to hit the football. This is a great game that is even more fun if you play online. While it’s not strictly a soccer game, it’s still highly competitive and fun to play.
5. Head Soccer
What will you get if you combine Street Fighter with soccer? My guess is you get this game.
While the game may look complicated, the controls are kept extremely simple. The game makes it easier to shoot the ball towards your opponent and do it with style.
There are 54 different avatars that you can use to spice up your game. The game also provides multiple modes including arcade, tournament, survival and league. This soccer game for Android comes with a stable online multiplayer mode as well.
These were the some of the best soccer apps available on Google Play. These games and apps will keep you connected to your favorite sport for a very, very long time.
