soon as the ball has come into possession of the player, they need to be quick
to decide whether to pass it or not. If they don’t pass it immediately, they
need to move with it; if they do pass it, they again need to move along,
following the general ball movement.
The long through ball: This is a long, and usually
high, pass from a teams’ own half, over the heads of the other team’s defence.
It is intended for the attacking players to chase and it is important that they
remain in an onside position until the ball is kicked. The tactic works best
with strong and fast forwards who will have a good chance of winning back the
ball, taking control over it, and eventually getting a shot on goal.
Counter attack-the tactic involves dropping deep,
allowing the opposition to have the ball and come forward with it, committing
players forward and leaving gaps in behind as they go. The aim is to take the
ball off the opposition, exploiting the space left to attack and score.
