Football Commentary - US Style


Americans like to be different from the rest of the world and the World Cup football (excuse me!! Soccer) tournament in progress, I found it interesting how the TV commentary differs from what I am normally used to.  Some of the terms used are described below

  •  Soccer - the rest of the world calls it Football but Americans call it Soccer.  The term football is used for the sport of American Football.
  •  Double Team - A term derived from basketball, where two players corner or defend one player. I dont think there is an equivalent term in football.
