World Cup Word of the Day: To ghost past
We use the phrase ‘to ghost past someone‘ in football when an attacker moves past an opposing player as if he or she is not there, i.e. they dribble past him or her easily. A player will ghost past another player in an effortless manner using skill and speed with the idea being that the opposition will not be able to see or touch him. To ghost past.
