free-kick and ball is played quickly out to Ricken unmarked on right-wing..
3) He then crosses the ball into Bobic.
Bobic is first to the ball and scores.
The Bayern defence is caught sleeping by the quick free-kick and is unbalanced
with the left-back out of position.
When a free-kick is conceded (wherever on the pitch), all teams must keep
their concentration to make sure that no opposition players are left free
in space. Here, the Bayern defence is outnumbered and the distinct lack
of concentration is punished.
- This moves shows how important it is for teams to sometimes play free-kicks quickly (be aware of attacking possibilities) and to capitalise on a defence that is caught unawares. Again, Bobic does what all quality forwards must do, be first to the ball.
