What does "prod home" mean in football (soccer)?
GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-0 BOURNEMOUTH (MANE) Andddddd we have liftoff at Anfield! Sadio Mane prods home at the second time of asking inside the box for his 17th goal of the season in all competitions.
Asmir Begovic did so well to get down low and save Mane’s initial free header inside the penalty area, however Bournemouth’s sleeping defence did not have the awareness to get to the ball first and clear it away.
The Liverpool forward picked out a free corner in the net and swept the ball flying into the back of the net. 1-0 after just seven minutes.
