Does the verb "to anticipate" make sense in football/soccer?

If so, do you have a correspondent phrasal verb?

Thank you

@paok1970,
Yes, "to anticipate" makes sense in football/soccer.

A simple example is, "the goalie anticipates the direction the ball takes as the kicker strikes it."

In what context are you looking to use the phrasal verb?

@InfraBlue,
No it's not.

We don't have kickers in football.

I'd say, Three strikers are in the box anticipating a cross.
