Every football fan will give you a reason why they love Football, they may all differ in words but in a nutshell, it all boils down to a very simple one; Football is a sport that keeps you engaged, interested, thrilled and invested in the game from the kickoff to the final whistle. Much like the video game fans, football fans love the unpredictability and the range of different emotions the sport can bring out in you. The only thing that is as satisfying as football is a football video game and if you have an Android smartphone or tablet, you are in luck!  

The Play Store is filled with hundreds of great football games. Most of these games are free to play but come with various in-game purchases and micro-transactions. So, here’s our list of the 15 best Android football games:

1. Top 11 Be A Soccer Manager


Like the title suggests, this game solely focuses on letting you be a football manager, allowing you to build your own ultimate dream team. Like the legendary manager Jose Mourinho himself said, this game is a great example of how to perfectly blend team management, skill, and passion.  

The game features over 5000 real players with the same abilities and attributes as their real life counterparts. You get to choose the players and buy them in the transfer window section. However, the prices for transfer and player wages are also reality-based, which means you probably will never find a top performer like Lionel Messi for cheap. It does give the player that added motivation to progress in the game and become a bigger clubhouse/team in order to acquire the top talents, to make their teams stronger and better.
