B. Winning and losing

Sportsmen and sportswomen want to win matches, not lose matches. But you can’t win all the time! Sometimes a team or player deserves to win, but gets narrowly defeated/beaten.

Before they go in for / enter a competition, athletes train hard. They probably attend/do at least five training sessions a week. They are likely to put up a fight to gain/get a place in the next stage/ round of the competition. Of course, a sportsperson’s ultimate aim is to break the world record in their sport. If they succeed, they set a new world record and become a world record holder. They are sure to come up against fierce/intense competition as they try to achieve their ambitions. Sometimes they are satisfied if they just achieve a personal best.

Some sports people so desperately want to win that they take drugs to enhance their performance. This will be discovered when they fail a drugs test.

C. Football

You can play or have a (football) match/game (of football). It might be a home or an away match depending on whether you’re playing on your team’s home ground or not.
The aim is to score a goal. Players may tackle an opponent to try to take possession of the ball. If you tackle in an illegal way, you foul your opponent. This will lead to the referee blowing his whistle and an opponent taking a penalty or taking a free kick. If someone isn’t playing very well the manager may decide to drop the player from the team or bring on a substitute. Both teams hope that they will have taken the lead by half-time.

Hi José,

Do you fancy coming on a sporting weekend with me next month? It sounds great – would make a change from playing computer games. You can make lots of different activities. You could even do fishing, I think. You can’t go skiing at this time of year but you can make water skiing, if you like. Everyone has to make general exercises first thing in the morning and then you can make whatever sport you like, more or less. I’ve never practised badminton so I think I’m going to do that. Then in the afternoon I’m looking forward to the chance to practise my tennis serve with their professional coach. Please try to come!
