  • Hi everyone, welcome back to VT English.

  • The FIFA World Cup is going on right now, and the final is just around the corner.

  • So in today's video, I'm going to teach you some phrases and vocabulary about soccer.

  • Before we get into our phrases, let's take a minute to talk about the word "soccer."

  • Americans usually use the word "soccer," while people in the UK

  • usually use the word "football."

  • In America, football is a completely different sport, and people in the UK

  • usually call that sport "American football."

  • Alright, let's start by learning a few questions and answers that you can use when talking about soccer.

  • Which team are you supporting, or, rooting for?

  • If you're talking to someone about soccer, you'll probably want to know which team they're supporting.

  • You can ask them:

  • "Which team are you supporting?" or "Which team are you rooting for?"

  • To answer this question, you can simply tell them the name of the team that you're supporting.

  • For example: "I'm rooting for Spain."

  • What's the score?

  • If you want an update about a soccer gamemaybe you've missed the beginning of the game

  • you might want to ask: "What's the score?"

  • If someone else asks you this, you can answer with something like:

  • "It's 2-1 for Russia."

  • This means that Russia has two points, and the other team has only one.

  • We say "for Russia" to show that Russia is the team with more points.

  • Who won the game?

  • Another important question is: "Who won the game?"

  • If one team won, you can say something like:

  • "Iceland won," or,

  • "Iceland won 3-1."

  • But if the two teams ended with the same score, you can say:

  • "It was a tie," or,

  • "They tied 2-2."

  • Now let's learn some soccer vocabulary starting with some basic soccer positions.

  • Goalkeeper or goalie

  • In soccer, each team has one goalkeeper

  • whose duty is to guard their goal.

  • An example of a goalkeeper is Manuel Neuer from Germany.

  • Forward

  • Forwards are the players that play closest to the other team's goal, and are most responsible for scoring goals.

  • A well-known forward is Lionel Messi from the Argentina team.

  • Midfielder

  • Midfielders are usually between their team's forwards and defenders.

  • An example of a midfielder is Arturo Vidal who plays for Chile.

  • Defender

  • A defender's role is to protect their team's goal.

  • A well known defender is Sergio Ramos who plays for Spain.

  • Now that we know the basic positions,

  • let's learn some more soccer vocabulary words.

  • Kick-off
