    Hello, there. I am reading an article about English soccer. I think that it is hard to understand the article about the soccer.

    " Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning goal in the sixth minute for United from just shy of the 40 yard mark."

    Is the red like "I am shy"?

    Re: Shy?

    In the context of that sentence, shy means "short" or "deficient". Thereby, a conclusion may be drawn that the soccer player scored at one point not far from the 40 yard mark or he did it at a distance less than the said mark.
