The telling moment in this counterattack is the marking on Nedved. Even
though the defence is outnumbered 4 against 3 & tries not to get drawn
out of position, Nedved is left free to make a run at the back post. We

Excellent example of how to lead a counterattack when outnumbering the defence.
Fast movement along with perfect timing of runs & passes.
