Equaliser (sports)

Last updated

An equaliser is a term used in Commonwealth English to describe a goal or run scored by one particular team that brings the scores level. [1] [2]

For example, if Team A is winning 1-0 against Team B, but then Team B scores and makes the match 1-1, then that goal would be deemed an equaliser.
