"Extra time"[edit]

Resolved

The article repeatedly uses "extra time" to refer to the time added on for stoppages, which is a bit confusing as, in the UK at least, "extra time" refers exclusively to the 30 minutes added on if the score is level after normal time. The time added on for stoppages is referred to as "stoppage time", "added time" or "injury time". Is this an American English thing? --86.185.254.21 (talk) 09:23, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Extra time in the two instances second use does not refer to Overtime (sports). I would be OK with a quick change to stoppage time (currently a redirect to subsection of Association football) but variations in the English language are a hot topic so would hate to do it if there are any objections.Cptnono (talk) 09:53, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
The first occurrence (cup semifinal) does mean extra time, the goal was scored 5 minutes into the extra half-hour, check the cited source. The second one (unlinked) should be stoppage time, which is acceptable usage in both Brit and AmEng. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 10:36, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, dude! And good catch IP.Cptnono (talk) 10:40, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing this Cptnono! I am ashamed. :) --SkotyWATC 16:27, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
Not that bad! You were probably asleep. I was still up celebrating the win v Chicago.Cptnono (talk) 21:46, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
