Someone needs to help me make the leap from penalty kick to "versus."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
And I don't have too much faith in people who use the (non-) expression 'Soccer ball term'.
Wow, the level of arrogance here is stifling. I, as not a teacher, can easily see how a penalty kick can be thought of as "versus". And for my friend, I’m sorry that him speaking ESL is below your tolerance.

At a stretch, I guess I can see that a penalty kick in soccer is one player versus one goalkeeper.
Nonetheless, it is quite clear that it's not used in BrE or AmE, or any other version of English, so as long as the OP understands not to use it in future threads, then that's all that really matters.
Could we try to keep things on an even keel here please? Thanks
