    These sports reports have provided you with all sorts of mysteries, Fakmali. "Opening exchanges" means that players on opposite sides were trying to score goals against each other.

    In a war, the "opening exchanges" could refer to the gunshots that opposing armies began firing at each other.

    'Opening exchanges' refers to the first minutes of the game when the two teams are trying to gain an early advantage and judge the strength of their opponents.
