    Re: Football matches on Tuesdays

    Not nearly as common as in ice hockey, though. I admit I haven't seen a whole lot of soccer, but every game I see tends to be 1-0 or 2-1.

    Re: Football matches on Tuesdays

    A few friends and I usually play football every Tuesday. I scored 3 goals on today's match but it ended badly for me - I did my back in.

    Re: Football matches on Tuesdays

    Would it be possible to hear 'on today's match' from native speakers, perharps football commentators? If I am not mistaken, I heard something similar on BBC radio 5.

    Thank you

    So, can we assume that the reason (it there is one) why it should be 'in' is that 'score' will take 'in' only in this context?

    Thank you
