Conclusions:

- Good aerial strength to win the header and good communication skills knowing where to knock the ball back to set up the shot. Intelligent feigning movement from Magellanes to fool the defenders and send them the wrong way in order to create himself space.
- The defenders largely outnumber the attackers and will be disappointed to have conceded the goal. A lack of communication on whom to mark seems to be the key issue.
