Comments & Conclusions:

- Defence: The Lecce right-back is too far forward leaving space behind him. The central defender tries to anticipate the cross and defends the centre of the goal . This allows Chevtchenko move unmarked to the back post - Shows need for good defensive co-ordination of movements/positions and to assure marking.

- Attack: A nicely weighted pass to use Serghinio's speed and run allows him to capitalise on this space and cross to the back post where Chevtchenko scores - Good vision and movement off the ball, quality crossing (cross eliminates both defender/keeper) and assured finishing by the centre-forward.
