tunnel


Explanation:
La manga es una especie de túnel inflable que se pone a entrada de la cancha.
Tiempo atrás eso no existía. Se empezó a colocar a partir de la época en que empezó a haber violencia en el fútbol, para proteger a los jugadores de los "proyectiles" que los "hinchas" (fans) de los equipos contrarios les lanzaban.
Así que yo lo dejaría en tunnel. Incluso acá cuando transmiten los partidos por TV, los periodistas se refieren a la manga como túnel.

Suerte! :-)
