Comments:

- The telling moment in this move is when the defence is beaten by Vieri's run from deep. The defence is static and even though outnumbering the attackers, the marking is loose.
- The other important moment is the excellent timing of the run and the pass into pace. Also Vieri keeps his cool to finish even with two defenders closing him down

 
Conclusions:
- Ability to make the pass to players making runs from deep behind the man on the ball.
- Ability to run with the ball at high speed and finish under great pressure.
