2019 Women’s World Cup Language: Sloppy
The USA defeated England 2-1 in the first semi-final on Tuesday in Lyon and though England missed a penalty in the final ten minutes the best team definitely won. The American side were fitter, smarter and more clinical in front of goal while the English side were described as being ‘sloppy‘ both in front of goal and with their passes. To be sloppy means to be careless or casual and when a team is sloppy in front of goal it means that they miss chances, they fail to score. Sloppy passing means that passes to team mates go astray – they do not reach their intended targets. Check out our quiz on the language of passing here.
