vs. Yokohama FC (youtube)   Leave a comment

Just as I was hoping that we could hold on for the draw we showed some new mental character and pushed forward for the win.

Lee Kwang Seon showed the sort of flick header which we had been hoping that Punosevac would be able to do, and Hirai doesn’t need too many chances in the box.

It is the sort of simple goal which Avispa don’t score enough of.

Sending a defender forward like Lee and putting a ball into the box is something which is seen regularly in the Premier League (even for throw-ins with some clubs), but Avispa always seem to play free-kicks from half-way back to the defence to pass around for a bit.
I know it’s what Barcelona/Liverpool/Swansea etc. do with those free kicks, and it is a nice way to play, but it is also good if we have a more direct option like this in our repertoire.
