The Art of Playing Attacking Soccer – Part 3 – Positional Games
Forming triangles – Creating superior numbers on the ball – Open body position – Recognizing and exploiting gaps – Securing ball possession
The third part of the series “The Art of Playing Attacking Football” is all about the importance of a good positional game as a requirement for successful positional attacks.
A positional attack is always started when a fast counterattack isn’t possible. It is characterized by a secure build-up from the back and safe passing sequences from the first third over the midfield in the attack zone to prepare goalscoring opportunities.
