Conclusions:

- Good running off the ball from Hassler to create space for the shot. The centre-forward shows good awareness to play the ball back into the path of Hassler. Overall, the passing and movement is high-quality.
- The defending team does not track the off the ball run by Hassler. Similarly, the central-defender is at fault as he allows the forward to get in front of him far too easily.
