I performed a sliding tackle to my opponent on football, and the announcer says “foul and a free kick in a very dangerous area,” what does that mean?

In football (soccer), a sliding tackle is a defensive move where a player attempts to dispossess an opponent by sliding along the ground and taking the ball away with their feet. However, if the sliding tackle is executed in a reckless or dangerous manner, it can result in a foul being called by the referee.

In the situation you described, the announcer is stating that you committed a foul with your sliding tackle. This means that you likely made contact with your opponent in a way that the referee deemed as a violation of the rules, such as tackling from behind, using excessive force, or endangering the safety of your opponent. As a result, the opposing team has been awarded a free kick, which is a restart of play from the spot where the foul was committed. The announcer also mentions that the free kick is in a “very dangerous area”, indicating that the opposing team now has an advantageous position from which to potentially score a goal, as the free kick will be taken from a close range to the goal. This implies that your foul has put your team in a vulnerable position and increased the chances of the opposing team scoring a goal from the resulting free kick.
