2019 Women’s World Cup Language: Tap-in

England’s second goal in their 3-0 win over Norway in the first of the Women’s World Cup quarter-finals was scored by their centre forward Ellen White who scored from close range. This means that she scored from very near the goal, while we can also use the phrase ‘a tap-in‘ which describes a goal that has been scored from very near the goal – the player only has to hit it very softly to score; to tap it. Strikers love these types of goals as they are relatively easy to score – they simply have to tap it home.
