More soccer terms in Chinese language: 弧线球hu2 xian4 qiu2 (swerving ball), 帽子戏法mao4 zi3 xi4 fa3 (hat-trick), 清道夫qing1 dao4 fu1 (sweeper), 自由人zi4 you2 ren2 (cweeper).

I know offside in Chinese language is 越yue4位wei4. 越 means beyond and 位 means position, offside means “beyond the position” indeed.

As a rabid football fan, I’m really happy to learn so many words about soccer in Chinese language! By the way, how do you say “offside” in Chinese language?
