Can you help me with English please?
John failed to turn up for football practice yesterday.
What does "turn up" mean in this case?

Show up or attend.

"Appear." It should be "show up" not "turn up." "Show up" means "appear where you're supposed to be." "Turn up" means "appear by chance" or "appear after a search."

I am not sure, but I think it may mean showing up. "John failed to show up for football practice yesterday." That is a guess.

It means "go to". John didn't go to football practice yesterday.
