no Thais don't use the verb 'dive' ดำ(น้ำ) for football


only pun with dive in Thai would be with singing, when you mumbles through lyrics is euphemistically called ดำน้ำ

One needs to know about football which most youngsters can’t avoid knowing, also when they say ไดฟ์ for faking an injury, (if they do) they would have to be told that it was กระโดดนำ้ without the นำ้ which looked nothing like what the divers who rescued the team were doing. Yes too difficult unless they speak a lot of English.
