Brazilians do love their soccer! So much so that many colloquial expressions that we use in Brazilian Portuguese come from soccer vocabulary. Here’s another great Brazilian colloquial expression that comes from soccer vocabulary: Pisar na bola.
In the video below you will learn the pronunciation and meaning of Pisar na bola.
I have additional information and examples using the expression in the full post here.

Espero que a Seleção Brasileira não pise na bola nesta Copa do Mundo.= I hope the Brazilian team will not mess up in this World Cup.
Practice is the key to using your new vocabulary with confidence. There’s only so much that apps, books, and videos can do for your Portuguese. You need to have real conversations with real people in order to take your fluency to the next level.
