    Re: we lost easily

    You can lose easily. It means you didn't put up much opposition. You can also win easily.

    Football matches last for a set length of time, so that is not what it means. You don't play football for 2 minutes then lose.

    If it was a boxing match then you could lose easily if your opponent knocked you out in the first round.
