As soon as a team gains possession of the ball, with time and in space, its players’ thoughts turn to attacking. There are many ways in which a team can launch an attack, from a fast drive into space by a player who is sprinting forward and pushing the ball ahead, to a slow probing attack in which many players keep the ball securely in possession and look for an opening.
