    to strike on

    Guido Burgstaller struck early on.

    What does it mean? It's associated with football. "Burgstaller scored a goal"? What's the meaning of "on"?

    I've faced lots of these kind of phrases reading articles about football and I'm confused. I want to understand everything, every single word must be clear for me.

    Re: to strike on

    Early on" here means "in the early stages of the game".

    I went to the cinema early on in the evening and then I went to a party.
    It's a four-hour play but the fight scene takes place early on.
    Earlier on today, I swam in the sea.

    With the first and third sentences, "on" could be omitted. In the second, it can't.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi.

    Did you, ems, miss the opening quotation marks in the beginning of your post, please?
