Thanks for the post and the question.
Cleats are of course studs, match ups would be marking someone while on frame is the same as to be on target.
Does anyone have any more examples of US soccer terms?
Welcome to the forum Amadeu,
Nice questions and hopefully we can add these to our glossary in the near future.
a. A peach here means something brilliant, amazing or indeed, beautiful. So, the player scored a beautiful goal.
b. A cracking goal is something similar – a really very good goal; one which makes the crowd jump up in delight.
c. The away end is the area in the stadium (usually behind one of the goals) where the away team’s supporters/fans stand or sit.
Example: The away end went crazy after the striker scored an absolute peach. This means that after the player scored an amazing goal the away fans celebrated.
Hope that helps
