Cross (football) - Usage

Usage

As hinted before, crosses are primarily used for goal-scoring efforts. Players in flank positions, usually being wingers, wingbacks and fullbacks, deliver the ball into the central part of the pitch, close to the opponent's goal. Teammates in the central positions, such as strikers and central midfielders, attempt to utilize the delivered ball by deflecting it with their head or feet, depending on the height of the delivery, towards the goal and hopefully scoring.

A player who delivers balls this way is normally acknowledged as a crosser.

Famous quotes containing the word usage:

    Girls who put out are tramps. Girls who don’t are ladies. This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word. Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn’t put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady. What you have probably found is a lesbian.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1951)

    I am using it [the word ‘perceive’] here in such a way that to say of an object that it is perceived does not entail saying that it exists in any sense at all. And this is a perfectly correct and familiar usage of the word.
    —A.J. (Alfred Jules)

    Pythagoras, Locke, Socrates—but pages
    Might be filled up, as vainly as before,
    With the sad usage of all sorts of sages,
    Who in his life-time, each was deemed a bore!
    The loftiest minds outrun their tardy ages.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
