Football Language: Unchanged
Teams often change their line-ups because of tactics, injuries, or that players may be out of form. With the large amount of games that teams have to play it is often a good idea for coaches and managers to change their starting xi – to give players a break and also to to give squad players a chance to show their value. We sometimes call this ‘rotation‘. If a team does not change its starting line up then we use the phrase ‘the team remains unchanged‘.
Example: City unchanged for Rams clash (22nd May 2018, Bristol City News)
