  • – equipment to play football.

Please note that the striker takes the most active position in the last stage of the attack. The forward has to strike at the gate from a wide variety of positions and distances. Very often a striker has to hit the ball from the most uncomfortable positions. Therefore, there must be accurate and very powerful head-kicks in a footballer’s arsenal.


Master the game on the verge of an “offside” position while near a free defender. Here the striker needs to be able to use each transfer of team partners. Your task is to stay near a free defender all the time and try first to get to the ball.


If the game goes in midfield, take control of the team’s actions on yourself. Organize an attack in the direction of the enemy’s gate and participate fully in its development. A striker when playing in midfield must be active in finding free space. It is also important by your actions to mislead the opponents players who care for you.


When the ball is on the side of your team’s field, pull back into the midfield line, exiting under enemy custody. Here it is most convenient to get the ball and assess the game situation. If there are difficulties among partners who also play in the attack, the central striker takes steps to remedy the situation by going to a free place and opening up to receive the ball.


Massive pressure from the guardianship players of the other team try to stop quickly. To do this, the striker is advised to perform short forward or backward movements with a sideline. After getting the ball straight into your feet, quickly assess the position of the partners and pass the ball to whoever is in the most advantageous position. Once the ball is passed, move immediately to a free spot near the opponent’s goal, opening up for possible transfer.


When you are in close proximity to the enemy’s gate and receive a transfer, try to assess the situation as quickly as possible. If conditions allow, complete the combination with a precise and powerful kick on goal. The reward for your skill will be scoring a goal, congratulations from teammates and admiration from fans.
