It's Liu's second win in May 6,he took the 110-meter hurdles title at the Osaka Grand Prix in Japan.

His performance at these meets should set a good tone for this year.Liu said he believed he will go sub-13 again soon.

It was not a level playing field between team Germany and Costa Rica.There are hundreds and thansands of football fans backed team Germany.I like Germany too not only because they won this game but I admire and repect their spirit of never-say-die.It is the reason that sports can draw so many attention because people can get to know each other from their performance during the match.

foul------ a violation of the rules-------including kicking,pushing,shoving(挤),tripping(拌摔)and dangerous or aggressive play------for which an official often awards a free kick.A player commits foul on someone else or simply fouls someone else.Professional foul ,in which a foul committed intentionally on an attacker just outside the defender's penalty area,is often used to prevent a scoring opportunity without incurring a penalty shot.The players may be sent off if he or she committed serious fouls.:wdb15:

annieyu 2006-06-28 23:31

A term used to indicate when the referee has penalized a player with a yellow or red card.A player is said to be booked or get booked.Also known as a caution or booking.In current FIFA games,a single booking from the group stage will not be carried over into the second round.But in the knockout stage, a player is suspended for at least one match if he picks up two yellow cards in separate games.

here's a passage from chinadaily:

足球英语:战绩怎么说
[ 2006-06-29 14:06 ]

一个球队的战绩包括在一连串比赛中的胜负和积分。你知道这些用英语都怎么说吗?还不知道的赶快搭上我这班车去了解一下吧!

先给大家讲讲赢球输球的名词,“名正”才“言顺”嘛!我们看到的积分榜上通常都会这么写:

GP W D L GS GA GD P
Italy 3 2 1 0 5 1 4 7

这个 GP就是 Games Played的缩写,意思是“场次”。W、D、L分别是 wins、draws、 losses,就是胜、平、负了。GS代表进球(goals scored),GA 代表失球(goals against),GD代表净胜球(goals difference)。P就是积分(points)了。

下面我们看看句子中都是怎么表达这些意思的。

1. Angola, collecting one point with a 0-1-1 record, currently stand third with one goal conceded.

这是安哥拉赛完两场之后的报道。当时安哥拉是一平一负,进一球,积一分。0-1-1这个表示战果的方法是老美常用的,三个数字代表的顺序是:胜-平-负。0-1-1就是表示 “零胜一平一负”,那个小横杠(-)要读成and,记住不要和几比几的to弄混了哦。这个积分就可以说成是 collect (number) point(s)。而“排第几位”就可以说成是 stand + 基数词。

2. Mexico rank second on four points with four goals scored and three lost.

墨西哥是以小组第二的身份出线的。这个rank second on four points的表达可真够简单明了。我用汉语怎么说都要多出好几个词。

3. We lost by 1 point.

我们输了一分。

在英文要讲赢了几分或是输了几分非常简单,用 win by 和 lose by (通常是用的过去式)就成了。例如“我们赢了七分”就可以说We won by seven. 或是在数字后加上 points 代表赢或输了多少分,比如We won by seven points. 输了几分则把 won 改成 lost,例如 We lost by seven. 或是We lost by seven points.

At last ,I know the word PK derived from,PK ---Penalty Kick,That means one win over the other one .Ha ha.......it is another gain from watching football.I am now expecting for PK between the two teams(Argentina --Germany)

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:31

it is time of the last half of adding time match,I am so tired now .I can not imagine how the players feel on this moment.

Adding time match ,I am not sure about this expression, but i feel it is right.

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:33

The PK is beginning now ,who will win?The chance is fifty to fifty.

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:40

Alaya is kicking the second penalry shot but he became a hard cheese.

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:44

Finally Germany entered for the semi-fanial.The score was 5:3.Although I felt dispointed ,this is football everything may happen.See you ,Argentinian team.

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:51

This ending also testify that the opportunity is waiting for people who are well-prepared,since before the match the Germany had done the toxophily,on one hand ,it helped them to relax,on the other hand ,it helped them to prepare for the PK stage.So the skills is one thing but the ending is another thing.If we compare our life to journey,we should be well-prepared all the time or we will never know what time we will be kicked out of the field and can never return.

annieyu 2006-07-01 03:54

i have to leave now for I can not stay overnight or I will not take my mother for a walk this morning.Now it is the biggest thing for me to help her recovery.Although I expect to watch the next match but I should choose something and give up something ,this is the life.

Goal: A player can score a goal or make a goal with a shot or header.If a striker fails to make a single goal after several matches,he faces a goal drought

annieyu 2006-07-07 18:39

This is a goal scored when a player kicks or otherwise causes the ball to go into his own side's goal,resulting in a goal scored for the opposition.So,the phrase "score an own goal"means "自摆乌龙"in Chinese.In daily life,"Own goal"has become a metaphor for any action that backfires (结果适得其反)on a person.

annieyu 2006-07-07 19:01

Both words can be used as a noun and a verb,as in:"England drew 2-2 with Sweden.","England held Sweden to a 2-2 draw";"England tied Sweden 2-2';"England held a 2-2 tie with Sweden"
"The England Sweden match ended in a draw/tie"

A goal that evens the scores can be called an "equalizer"or an "equalizing goal"(扳平比分的进球)
