FLANK PLAY

 

With space at a premium in the modern game, the battleground has moved from midfield onto the flanks. Hence why some commentators believe full backs to be the most important players on the pitch. Further forward, the increased prevalance of inverted wingers has meant the primary goalscoring threat for most modern teams tends to come from their wide positions rather than central. This is why sessions focused on enhancing flank play is so important.
