Counter Attacking from Midfield

Rating: 4
from 1 members ratings

The counter attack is a dangerous attacking tactic. If done properly, it can be the most effective way of beating the defence before they have a chance to find any structure, leaving big space to exploit. Develop quick, powerful players and focus on control and timing in front of goal to finish the attack off effectively.
