1) The ball is unsuccessfully cleared from a deep defensive position and possession is lost.
2 ) The Marseille player immediately passes to his team-mate in space on the wing.
3) The ball
is quickly crossed in to Alfonso who by timing his run to perfection,
gets in front of the defender and scores.
- This is
a good example of turning regained possession into immediate attack by
playing the ball back in early. Also demonstrates the importance of attackers
timing their runs and being first to the ball.
