Bolt, of course, is quicker. But what Pato did, he did with the ball at his feet. The young Brazilian took possession of it inside the center circle, then suddenly accelerated straight for the Barcelona goal.
I have several questions concerning this short paragraph.
What does the "it" stand for? Does it mean "feet"?
And how to understand the red sentence? What did the writer mean by mentioning "for the Barcelona goal"?
Here is the link.
His feet, right?
But what Pato did, he did with the ball at his feet.
But what does the red sentence mean?
He is a player of AC milan, but why did he accelerated straight for the Barcelona goal?
He should accelerated straight for the AC milan.
In soccer, you score in the opponent's goal. Barcelona's goaltender stands in front of Barcelona's goal and Milan's players try to put the ball into it.
(The same sense is used in ice hockey and American football as well. You defend your goal/net/end zone. You try to penetrate the other team's.)
Thanks a lot.
