In recent years, the number of goals scored in professional soccer games has been going down. Defenders have been getting better and better at stopping their opponents.

Even a fast, young player like Bryan Jordan, a forward for the Los Angeles Galaxy, needs help from his teammates to get past the defenders and score a goal. One of the ways they can help him doesn’t even require running or kicking the ball. It’s just shouting, “Man on!” at the right moment. Learn more about this phrase and Bryan Jordan below.

Jason:  Welcome to English, baby! I am here with Bryan Jordan of the Los Angeles Galaxy. How are you?

Bryan:  Good. How about yourself?

Jason:  Great. You’re a really energetic player, and we were hoping you could teach us a phrase that gets shouted a lot on the pitch, “man on”.

Bryan:  “Man on.” Man on is a term that’s used when a player is receiving the ball a lot and a player from the opposing team is pressuring them. So if you’re collecting the ball and a guy’s right on you, about to maybe steal it, you’d say, “Man on! Man on!” to warn your player that a guy is closely coming in for it.

Jason:  Cool. Thanks so much.

Bryan:  English, baby!

Bryan Jordan plays for forward for the Los Angeles Galaxy. It’s his job to score goals, but the defenders of the other team will try to stop him. If he sees a defender approaching his teammate, he can warn him by shouting, “Man on!”

It’s helpful to know that someone is about to steal the ball from you. Shouting, “Man on!” is kind of like saying “Look out!” or “Be careful!” Can you think of other helpful warnings?
