What’s the Score?


Sometimes I wonder about soccer players. Goals can be so hard to come by, yet the players often want the score to remain 0-0.

Here’s what I mean: After a team scores a goal and celebrates, players (and often coaches) shout, “zero-zero!” to remind the team to stay intense and not to relax just because it took the lead. Too many times the other team scores within the next five minutes.

That works fine when a team takes a lead. But this weekend, in a match I officiated, a team scored to tie the game 1-1, yet players still shouted “zero-zero!”

They needed to shout something different. Perhaps “Keep up the intensity!”

Until next time! Use the right words!
