    How would you say that during a football (soccer) match?

    When it's almost the 11th minute.

    Casi 11 (minutos de la prórroga) --> Almost 11 (minutes of the extra time) ???

    Another option: al 11 de juego de la prórroga --> into the 11th minute of the extra time ???

    In Spain commentators usually make sentences shorter so that they can go as fast as the game itself. I don't know about the English speaking commentators.

    Yes, both are right. I´m doing a football translation, too.

    Diría 'of extra time', no 'of the extra time'.
