get beat on pens? Hi! I am reading a Twitter about World Cup and I saw: "We are not getting beat on pens by Germany" It seems to be it's not grammatical to my knowledge(getting beaten? ) but I guess it delivers some meaning "get beat on pens"? So I can't even figure out this sentence's meaning now Thank you for reading it!:)

You are right that it is not grammatical. You also have not given us any context to go on. What was the conversation about? Context is often essential on this forum. You have also misspelled Germany. Was that a transcription error, or was the original spelled incorrectly as well? 'pens' could be short for 'penalties' if it is about football. We are not getting beaten on penalties by Germany.
