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 game — maybe 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
A kick-off is a kick that starts or resumed the game.
Players kick the ball from the center of the field.
Dribble
In soccer when you dribble, you run with the ball at your feet.
Tackle
If a player makes a tackle, they use their feet to take the ball from an opponent.
Header
A header is when a player uses their head to hit the ball.
Bicycle kick
A bicycle kick is when a player kicks the ball backwards over his or her own head.
