take charge of, plant, host it in, worked back into the mixer, push away, swallowed
Hello. I have a lot of difficulities understanding the following vocabulary. Take charge of: Plant a header: to place a header. Host it in: Push away: Worked back into the mixer. To be swallowed: What do they all mean? Lucas gets up to take charge of the free-kick that he won, and he hoists it in for Luiz, who plants a header that Maury pushes away spectacularly! The ball is worked back into the mixer for Cavani almost immediately, but another headed attempt is swallowed by the keeper.
OK, let's take a look at all of these words:
Take charge of: This means takes responsibility; in this context, Lucas decides he will take the free kick
Plant a header: to place a header. To direct a header; a controlled header
Hoist it in: Send a high pass into the penalty box, usually with several players waiting (so from a corner, free kick, or a winger's cross)
Push away: saves, but without catching the ball
Worked back into the mixer: crossed into the penalty area and a group of waiting players
To be swallowed: Saved; caught
Hope that helps!
Into the mixer is a great phrase. It suggests a real sense of desperation to get an equaliser or a late winner, i.e. hit it and hope!
i liked a lot "into the mixer" I didnt know.
Thank you so much again, Grell and Damian, for helping me understand the phrases. I fully get it now.
