The meaning of "remate" as a football term.

When in Spain recently I watched a lot of English Premiership and  Spanish La Liga  football matches on Spanish television. The word "remate" was repeatedly used when the ball was around the opposition side's penalty area. Can someone please explain what this means in English? Thank you.

Hola John,

If you go to SpanishDict.com and type in the verb "rematar" which can mean to finish off, shoot etc. you will find examples that pertain to sports. "Remate" seems to be the familiar imperative.

Saludos,

Ricardo

Gracias Ricardo. It's surprising that watching football matches  with Spanish commentaries can throw up so many interesting usages of vocabulary. 
Best wishes,
John

Indeed. I am finding the same watching American football on Canal+ Deportes (Spain). It's an easy / fun way to pick up vocabulary.
