Indonesia Javanese
Hello, what does "tuck home" mean? I read it in British english football.
Pablo Patti pulls back a deep cross for Parejo to tuck home.

    It means to put the ball in the back of the net, in otherwords to score a goal. It is a combination of two expressions "to tuck in" (meaning to put a child to bed) and "to put something home" (meaning to definitively place it where it belongs). Either expression can mean to finish something, and combining them doesn't change this.
