Football Language: Stroll past another team
Not all wins or victories are hard-fought or tough in football; sometimes they are quite easy. When one team easily defeats another team we say that they have strolled past them. To stroll means to go for a relaxing walk so if a team only has to walk in a relaxed manner to defeat another team it suggests that the victory was an easy one.
Example: Scotland stroll past 10-man Albania to boost play-off hopes (BBC.co.uk November 17th 2018).
