Today’s Friday Sports Funny features the “clean sheet” in soccer.
That’s because no other sport flaunts its language with the poetic depictions and eccentric expressions like soccer or international football.
Whether it’s a bookable offense for wayward defending, bringing one’s side level in a match or dispossessing the ball from an unexpected midfielder, soccer’s colorful language truly entertains.
A nil nil match serves as another example of the sport’s unique language.
Instead of applauding the goalies for their shut out work in goal, announcers gush over the keepers’ clean sheets.
Sure, you may need an interpreter or a glossary of terms to understand the eccentric vocabulary of soccer.
But, you’ll instinctively know that a goalie’s clean sheet is something to cheer about – if he’s defending your side’s goal.
