Subscribe: English Football Phrase

Each week we explain a soccer phrase or cliché on our weekly languagecaster podcast. You can find many more examples by going to our football clichés here.
This week’s English for football phrase is to score a brace. A brace means two of the same thing and comes from hunting – a brace of guns might be two pistols, a brace of birds would be two birds that had been shot for food. In football, you can score a brace, or two goals. If you score three goals, it is known as a hat-trick. On the last day of the Premier League season, Didier Drogba scored a hat-trick while his strike partner, Anelka, scored a brace for Chelsea.

To score a brace.
