We use a lot of English words to talk about football, a sport invented in England. But gradually, tir (kick) has replaced “ shoot ” and “ goal ”
has become known as gardien
de but (goal keeper). We still use corner and penalty.
Tirer (to shoot)
- Tirer un penalty (to take a penalty kick)Marquer (to score)
- Marquer un but (to score a goal)Jouer (to play)
- Jouer un match (to play a match)
When a player
commits a foul
, the referee
may issue a warning or a yellow card
A player who commits a serious foul receives a red card
and must leave the field.
