Pre-match peptalk:
wareware wa dai nippon teikoku no gunjin de aru! kanarazu katsu!
We are soldiers of the great empire of Japan! We will assuredly win!
These are words that are often shouted individually, or as a nonvariant part of randomly said phrases, are useful to know or I just couldn't remember the whole phrase.

手榴弾 : shuryuudan [or] teryuudan : grenade (when you hear this, move!)
砲撃 : hougeki : artillery
機関銃 : kikanjuu : machine gun
火炎放射器 : kaen-houshaki : flamethrower
歩兵 : hohei : footsoldier
工兵 : kouhei : combat engineer
狙撃手 : sogeki-shu : sniper
銃撃 : juugeki : gunfire
突撃 : totsugeki : charge, assault
敵 : teki : enemy

* Ame-kou is a slur used against Americans, I had to look this one up. -kou was originally an honorific title for someone with a court rank of a duke. In a weird process which is surprisingly common in Japanese it went from honorific to a slur, also used in words like ポリ公[pori-kou], "cop"
** "kuso" literally means "feces", but is a much milder expletive in Japanese than the equivalent word in English, on a level more similar to "damn". "yagaru" is a suffixal verb which shows contempt or disdain for the action it is suffixed to. Possibly comes from the verb "iyagaru", to hate/dislike. Not technically an obscenity but difficult to translate into English without one.
*** Literally "inserting rounds/bullets/ammunition!"
