When attacking in football it is important to not have too many players up field leaving your goal open to the opposition. When attacking its best to have at most 5 players attacking leaving 5 players back to defend your goal.
Different types of attacking play within football can have various advantages but all have been designed to result in a goal being scored.
Types of attacking play in football are:
Counter attacking play can be made use of when your team is defending. When your team is defending make sure your forward players are around the halfway line so when you eventually get the ball there are options to make a through-ball to and make a counter attack. This attacking play is very useful when defending a corner kick.
Long Ball Play:
The long ball style of play can be useful when there are no on-the-floor options for a player to use. The long ball play is employed as a gamble method of attack but can have advantages if correctly done. By hitting the ball up the field from defence or midfield the hope is that the strikers will either latch onto the hopeful pass or take advantage of any mistakes made by the defenders.
Wide Wing Play:
The wings on a football pitch can be used to expand the opportunity given to a team to attack their opposition. By spreading the ball wide you allow a different angle of attack and offer a number of opportunities for the winger which can be to take on the fullback and drag central defenders out of position, cut inside and drive forward at an angle or supply a cross from for the strikers to attack.
Set plays are very useful for teams that are losing as they give the team opportunities to overload the oppositions half and make an attack on goal. Teams that are losing a game will want to exploit all types of set plays such as free kicks, throw-ins and corner-kicks to hopefully make a break on goal.
Set plays such as free kicks are often performed with great skill by top premier league teams such as Arsenal Football Club.
