Hey hope you're all well.

In a couple of weeks I'm going to the US to play soccer. I'm excited and want to be as prepared as possible, so I have a few questions for you about soccer terminology.

For exampe; when I as a defender pass the ball to a midfielder who's turned towards our goal I might want to tell him that the coast is clear and that he can turn around to attack. How is this said with ease? In Sweden, this is widely known as "Vänd upp" which can be translated to "Turn up". Do you have a similar term known nationwide?

Also, is there any other terms that might come in handy on the pitch?

Thanks for taking the time,

Don't know if it's too late...but, As vondocha said "you have time,"
As for other terms I mostly know them in spanish, and I not too many come to mind

"watch your back" -opposing player close by, and that's all I can think of. =P

I teach youth soccer here at the academy and well we say nothing if no impending danger is coming. One less item for the player to digest.

When we do say something, it has to be fast one word commands that they can understand immediately.

If somone is coming, then we would say 'incoming' so the player can use his best judgement to make the next decision (or if one of our other players in his view points to a safe pass).

'up' to move forward, 'fall(back)' to defend, etc.
