Definition of injury time in English:
(In soccer and other sports) extra playing time allowed by a referee to compensate for time lost in dealing with injuries sustained by players.
- Last season Bolton conceded a goal in injury time in five games and it cost the club ten points.
- I don't agree with the time wasting bit - a referee can always allow more injury time to compensate.
- By the time the referee has sorted out all the pushing and shoving in the penalty box injury time is nearly over.
