    Help me out English native speakers!

    When talking about a lineup for a football match do you say "lineup" or "line-up" - or "line up"?

    Any help is appreciated! =)

    If it's a noun, as in this case, you can use lineup.

    I'd go all one word for that one.
    Either lineup, or line-up is acceptable in most cases. The latter is more 'correct', but correct doesn't always flow nicely.
