Today’s World Cup phrase of the day is the expression littered with fouls which means that a game is full of fouls, that the game was a dirty one. The World Cup final between Spain and Holland promised to be a festival of football but instead we witnessed a game that was littered with fouls – Holland committed 28 and Spain 19. There were also 14 yellow cards in the game making it one of the dirtiest finals in World Cup history. To be littered with fouls.
