Sure, but I don't think "they don't score much" as an argument against soccer makes sense if you like football. They don't score much in football either, it's just that the numbers are different because each score (except for the extra point) is assigned more than one point.
Personally, I'm a fan of all of the above, depending on the team. (Huge football fan, big basketball fan, not-very-active soccer fan but I seem to enjoy it when I watch.) Knowing the players and the finer points definitely helps no matter what it is. I like being able to say "Abby's got good position there, oh perfect Megan has the ball, if anyone can make this happen it's her, c'mon Megan beat that defender, WHOA check out that footwork! and look at that pass! and Abby heads it in!!!!" Or whatever.
