rechace [fútbol]

I would like to know how it is said in British English the action of a ball being cleared by the a football player.

In Spanish one might say:

[noun] un rechace: "a ball has been cleared and sort of rebounds"

[verb] rechazar (el balón): to clear the ball?

[passive] el balón fue rechazado por la defensa: ball was cleared by the defence?

Thank you in advance!

  • Thank you for the reply!

    I've posted another football query and any help is appreciated. :)

    PS: I'm doing some football translations and there are lots of gaps in my own glossary. :(
