Noun[edit]

Englisch n (genitive Englisch or Englischs or Englischen, no plural)

  1. English (language)
  2. (soccer, regional, parts of western Germany) A children’s game for three or more participants played on one goal: Each player is allocated the same number of points (e.g. ten) and one is chosen as the first goalkeeper, usually by means of a shoot-out where the objective is to hit the crossbar (so-called Lattenschießen). Then players try to score volley goals to diminish the keeper’s number of points. When a player scores a non-volley goal or shoots wide (and sometimes also when the keeper catches the ball in the air), the respective player is sent to the goal. The first player to reach 0 points is the loser.
