get a shot away/off,
Dear all. I can't understand the phrases "get a shot away", "get a shot off" and "get down" here. So, could you please explain?
43: Toral gets a shot away from the edge of the box for Birmingham City but Grant makes a comfortable save diving to his right. Derby County 0-0 Birmingham City
55' Kohr plays a deep cross into Koo and the South Korean almost crafts a chance from it. However, just as the midfielder gets the ball down it gets trapped in his feet and he can't get a shot off.
