Squeeze (in soccer) - Tradução em português

Olá! Estou fazendo uma tradução de um manual de futebol e me deparei algumas vezes com a palavra 'squeeze' relacionada à defesa. Não consigo imaginar o que possa ser... já achei que pudesse ser barreira, uma vez que os jogadores ficam 'esmagados' e 'espremidos' para a bola não passar, mas não é isso... pensei que pudesse estar relacionado à intimidar o adversário, mas tb não consigo achar uma equivalência em Português.

Estou desde ontem tentando achar uma possível tradução, mas tá difícil! Será que alguém pode me ajudar??? thx!

It could be several things, "to play in limited space" could be one of them:

Soccer squeeze at Richmond High

It is said that futsal, that five-a-side form of soccer played indoors on a basketball court, helps build ball skills as players try to pass and maneuver in limited space. But playing soccer in a school hallway might be stretching (or should we say, compressing?) things a bit. After his team had come from behind on the road to beat Alameda High 3-1 at Thompson Field on Jan. 9, Oilers coach Rene Siles said his players had to practice in the hall of Richmond High the previous night. He added that the team would have to practice in the same venue the following night, Jan. 10, and there again on Jan. 12. On the plus side, the Oilers are getting a new all-weather field. Problem is, that field – - which was expected to have been up and going by now – - is not yet ready for play. Patience is running short.

"It’s just not fair to these kids," Siles says. "They work hard. They are committed."

Here the players went to the celebration of a goal and one of them, well, celebrated by "squeezing" (pinching, sort of) the butt of other player.

The Iranian football federation bans two players indefinitely for their butt-squeeze celebration.

Here, it seems that the soccer team try his luck by trying to squeeze through (wedge itself in-between two teams that
were ahead in the last results).
