The EM is already in full swing, a public viewing event chasing the next, but you just can’t talk? Terms like offside, swallow and red card distribution are you still a mystery? We’re going to clear you up!
Women and Football: That’s where worlds meet. But also if you damn football all year round: to the European Championship you will be the old German jersey of your friend and cheer the boys. In order to be able to contribute some clever comments, we have explained the most important terms here.
Extra Time Or Overtime?
No girls, these two terms don’t mean the same thing. The stoppage time lasts only a few minutes (after the first or second half) and then happens when there are several game interruptions, quasi as compensation.
If there is a tie in a game where a winner has to be found, it goes into the extension. This takes two half-times to 15 minutes each. If no team can decide the game for themselves, it will be a penalty shootout.
Yes, that’s good, old offside. If you watch football on TV, a line is often displayed on a sideline. This line is based on the position of the rear defender of this half of the game, which, apart from the goalkeeper, is closest to his own goal.
An attacking opponent must not cross this line if he gets the ball played by a player. If this happens, the line judge rips the flag up and it is offside.
In short, a player is in the offside, when he is closer to the goal at the time of the play by one of the players, than the last/behind opponent’s defensive player.
However, this rule does not apply if the ball comes from a corner or a throw.
In addition to the 22 players, there are also referee and line judges on the course. The referee directs the game and the line judges monitor whether, for example, an offside happens.
A foul is basically all kinds of irregular behavior in the game. This includes the holding of the ball-owning opponent, the gross decrease of the ball from the side or from the back and the hand game (that is, when a player touches the ball with their hands-only the goalkeeper is allowed to do so, and even only in his own room).
If a player fouls an opponent in the penalty area (i.e. in the 16, that is the space that the larger of the two rectangles in front of the gate describes), the fouled team may take a strike or a “penalties”. So you can try to hit the enemy gate from the penalty spot (which is 11 meters away from the gate).
A corner is then performed when the ball has crossed the goal (that is, the line on which the gate is) and was last touched by a defending player.
A hat-trick is when a player has scored three consecutive goals in a half-time, without another player scoring a goal in between.
If a player drops and acts as if he had been fouled, it is called a swallow. If you do, you’ll get a yellow card.
