35' FOUL! Milner shifts the ball from right to left and digs out a hanging cross towards the back stick, but the referee penalises Kane for slightly nudging Jaager in the back when trying to meet the cross.

@kristal,
It should be an intention to emphasise the words in bold but could be a matter of finger trouble by the typist.

This is football talk.

Shift is to move.

A cross is when a forward kicks the ball across the goal towards a striker.

A hanging cross is when the ball comes down in front of the goal as opposed to moving across it.

The back stick is one of the goalposts.

Kane tried to meet the ball that had been crossed, he tried to kick the ball, presumably towards goal.

Digging out suggests Milner managed to do it despite a shaky start, probably with a defender.

Nothing to add to izzy's excellent explanation but - before I head to the bookies - can you confirm if Liverpool score the resultant penalty?

@lmur,
Thank you very much. I'm at a quandary re Spurs Liverpool, they've both stolen shamelessly from us. I guess Spurs tips it for having swiped our manager, so they'll probably win.

@izzythepush,
Koeman has ruled himself out of the running for the poisoned chalice that is manager of the Dutch national team. Good news for you.

While watching Sky Sports News earlier as they relayed interviews with Koeman, Klopp, Bilic and Wenger, I was struck by the range of accents and how well they have all have mastered the language. McLaren's cringe-inducing interview with a Dutch journalist came to mind!

@lmur,
The Dutch have got a head start, they all seem to speak it.

Our biggest fear for Koeman is if a big club shows an interest, Arsenal, Chelsea or the two Manchesters. I don't think he'd move for Liverpool or Tottenham.
