Hi Silvia - Welcome to Premier Skills English!

You have used the two most important words in your question 'draw' and 'tie'. 'Draw' is more common in British English and we say things like 'the match finished in a draw' or 'Manchester United and Manchester City drew 2-2'. 

If we are talking about a match in progress we can say 'the teams are drawing' or 'the scores are level'.

In American English 'tie' is used more.

Hope that helps,

Rich - The Premier Skills English Team

I'm wondering that whether or not the short additional time, between the end of the first half and the half time, could be called "injury time"? Or what else? Thanks :x

Hi William,

Yes, you're right. Injury time is played at the end of the first half and second half. The term 'additional time' is also often used to mean the same thing but is more general.
