    Hi,

    I have to translate a text about a football match (between two teenagers)
    They say:

    "El arquero tuvo que salir a achicarle"

    I cannot name the players, I have to use the number of their shirts.
    How would you translate these phrases?
    Thanks a lot. J.

    Not a literal translation but, being a soccer nut this is my try:

    "The goalkeeper had to approach the forward to reduce his angle"

    Hello
    An option
    the goalkeeper came off his line to reduce the angle of the shot/to block the shot

    Cheers
