End to end

A game is described as being end to end when both teams constantly attack each other. This type of game is sometimes referred to as a basketball game as the ball moves quickly from one goal to another. An end to end game is the opposite of a cagey game where neither team wishes to attack too much due to fear of losing.

    • Example: The Holland vs Italy Euro 2008 game was an end to end affair with the Dutch eventually winning 3-0.
    • Example: ‘Manchester United rampant in pulsating, end-to-end, eight-goal game with Leeds’ (Telegraph.co.uk, 20 December 2020)
