Today’s World Cup Phrase is ‘to turn on the style‘. Style in this phrase is from the adjective ‘stylish‘, meaning sophisticated, cool, classy – basically very good. To turn on, means to start, as in to turn on the tap (for water) or to turn on the light. So, to turn on the style means to put on a classy performance, usually a game with good passing, exciting attacking play and effective defending. Last night, Brazil turned on the style against Ivory Coast beating the African side 3-1 to qualify for the next round and to kick start their campaign. Tonight, can Spain turn on the style against Honduras when the two sides meet in the second round of games in Group H?
