So, in Swahili you actually close a goal? It makes sense.
Yeah, that's really interesting!
Walifunga .... would do .... i never heard walifunga magoli .... what else can you score ?
The basic meaning of funga isn't to score, but to close. So in Swahili you actually close the goal. That said, you can score points, in a tennis match for instance. I wouldn't call that scoring a goal, but it is still scoring.
