Here is the list of the top and best football games for Android
1. FIFA MOBILE SOCCER
FIFA Mobile Soccer is a simulation soccer game with more than 640 original teams, over 15,000 players and 30 leagues. It was developed by EA Mobile, a section of the EA Sports the makers of the PC and console version.
Newly introduced in the game is the “Attack Mode” where players defend against counter attacks from the opposition and maintain a constant offensive position.
The Live Events feature in the game is based on recent real events in the world of football. the multiplayer mode is also great as players are allowed to come together to form leagues so they can compete with other leagues.

2. PES2018 (PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER)
PES 2018 is the latest of the football game series and comes with great features like Real Touch ball control, improved passing, and other techniques. Teams like Barcelona, Madrid, and Arsenal also came fully Licensed on it.
With total control given to players on every action on the pitch, fully optimized controls and smooth gameplay, this game is definitely one of the football games you need to give a try.
Apart from the usual classic control, available are virtual pad controls that enhance the accurate shooting and passing which are features of the special “Advanced” controls provided in the game.
3. DREAM LEAGUE SOCCER 2018
This is one of the most popular football game and was recently acknowledged as one of the most played games to date. It is an equally amazing game where you get to build the greatest football team based on your preference. You get to build your own stadium, recruit the game’s licensed superstars to your team and lead your team to glory by achieving victories in every competition.
To me, the game is quite easy to play, the opposing teams are always easy on you whatever level of difficulty you are playing. But as easy as it is, netting a goal is difficult as you will be getting more of a “Goal Kick” than the actual “Goal!”. It will take a while to catch up on levelling the direction of a shot towards a goal. You need to get the game to understand what I mean.

4. SCORE HERO
Score! Hero was developed by First Touch Studio and it is very much unlike other soccer games. The method of playing is quite different as instead of having control a whole team at once, you get to control a player. Also, you may not get to play an entire match but participate in a number of key plays in a match. Sometimes, you may even be on the bench and not play at all for the whole 90 minutes.
The basic idea of the game is to complete a certain number of levels which is about 500. In every level, you need to get a required number of stars by scoring a goal or making a good assist before you can clear off to the next level.
The good news is even if your battery gets so low and eventually drop dead, you don’t need to worry about starting all over again. The game stores your progress and you can continue from where you left when your battery is charged.
The game is not played by clicking or tapping on any buttons on the screen but rather swiping the ball from one direction to another across the pitch.

5. SCORE WORLD GOALS 2018
Score! World Goals is an interesting game where you just need to imitate one of the most popular goals in football history. The popular goals like the one scored by Argentina against Nigeria in 1994 by star player Diego Maradona game are presented to you on a map.
This map displays the type of goal you need to score or imitate. If you successfully imitates the right steps and chose the correct line to score as was shown on the map, you will be able to move to the next level (that is if your goal is considered original).
