Hi RafaelRC,

Welcome to Premier Skills English! We hope you enjoy our website.

To line up a free kick means to prepare to hit the free kick and think about where you are going to hit the ball.

I understand very little about football, but so far I can manage to complete the sentences with the right vocabulary after seeing the drawings. There are some interesting words: own goal, equaliser, header.
