What is intercept in soccer?

The act of getting possession of the ball following an attempted pass or shot from a player on the opposing team.


Often, ball movement is stopped for an attacking team with an intercept. This is when a defending player is able to take possession of the ball off an unsuccessful pass by stepping into the path of the pass before the ball reaches the target.
