Explanation about offensive tactics actions in soccer. Analysis of offensive concepts (width, attacking moves, horizontal or diagonal pass, keep the ball, counterattack, run forwards losing a marker, creating empty spaces, one-two, pace of the game, overlapping and attacking speed).
All tactical moves performed quickly by the players of a team attacking, with precise and well-directed passes and runs from players without the ball who try to lose their markers or create empty spaces, can add speed to the move.
This is a tactical attacking move used by a player to support the teammate in control of the ball, getting closer and making things easier for him without actually taking up the teammate´s own space.
Players spreading out in attack allows teams to rationally take up the pitch when they attack or counterattack. Players cover for a teammate who ran forwards from the defence or move forwards with the move.
This is the tactical attacking move that all attacks and counterattacks should include to increase the chances of them being carried out quickly and successfully.
All moves carried out by players of a team who pass the ball or take it with them towards the opposing goal (in a vertical or diagonal way) and all forward movements made by players whose team is in control of the ball are considered attacking progress.
This is the tactical attacking move in which players´ aim is not to lose the ball. The team must keep control of it by passing, moving along with it, losing markers to help the teammate on the ball, losing markers to find spaces or dribbling, so as to have the initiative in the match for as long as possible.
This is the tactical attacking move based on long, medium or short passes that change the ball´s previous trajectory.
This is a collective tactical move that must be part of all attacks and counterattacks for them to be carried out in an ideal manner.
Supporting the teammate on the ball is the tactical move by which a player moves closer or further away from the teammate in control of the ball with no defenders to complicate the move.
Constant help means all the favourable options that teammates offer the player on the ball at any moment during the match.
This concept includes all the tactical moves that are part of the different movements that affect the speed of players during attacking play, as well as the speed and trajectory of the ball.
