In the group stage of the Meizhou Division of the Chinese League, Shaanxi Chang'an Athletic competed again with Zhejiang Greentown. With the goal of the old captain Yang Hao and the outstanding performance of all the players, the Shaanxi team defeated the super popular Zhejiang Greentown with a score of 1:0. Three consecutive league victories.
After the game, when Yang Hao was interviewed, he also expressed his feelings at this moment to the fans. He said, "Recently, everyone is getting better and better. Thanks to the solidarity of all teammates, the cohesion has been strengthened. When difficulties came, everyone did not accept defeat, and uphold the spirit of Northwest Wolf’s never-say-failure. When difficulties arise, we twisted into a rope, and our hearts did not loosen. We used our performance to rebound."
The team’s spirit of perseverance is believed to be felt by fans who watched the game. In addition, the team’s tactical improvement under the leadership of head coach Kim Bong-gil is obvious to everyone.
In the last contest against Shenyang, Liaoning, the Shaanxi team performed well, so the coach Jin Bongji continued to use the starting lineup of the previous game.
The Shaanxi team's 4-4-2 parallel midfield system and how the two inverted wingbacks operate in the game have been described in detail in the previous article, and this article will not repeat them here.
In the first half, the Shaanxi team had a total of 7 quick counterattacks after intercepting the ball near the arc of the center circle, and all shots were finally formed. After the steal, the Shaanxi team did not rush into the ball, but proceeded in an orderly manner according to the tactics deployed by the head coach Jin Bongji before the game.
As shown in the above animation, this was a quick counterattack launched by the Shaanxi team after a defensive and intercepted corner kick from the backcourt. Xu Wu used his ball-holding ability to cut inside and get rid of the opponent and sent a long diagonal pass. Yang Hao found Yang Hao on the wing. Yang Hao looked up after catching the ball from the wing and sent a through ball to the two teammates running in the middle. Unfortunately, the opponent's central defender fell to the ground and made a clearance.
When the game came to the 58th minute, the head coach Jin Bongji replaced the left and right wingbacks Xu Wu and Han Guanghui early. The substitutes were Yang He and Li Yingjian, who were on the left and right.
With the deepening of the game, the advantage of Zhejiang Greentown team's 3-5-2 formation is reflected. After Shaanxi team successively replaced two inverted fullbacks with good internal ball control skills, the midfielder was once It's out of control.
The Shaanxi team lost control of the midfield for two reasons:
1. Zhejiang Greentown’s foreign aid Mu Xiekui’s retracement and three midfielders have built a diamond-shaped midfield ball control network. This three-dimensional passing network can make it easy for teams with parallel midfield positions in the defensive handover area. There was chaos.
2. Secondly, compared with Xu Wu and Han Guanghui, the two wing assaulters Yang He and Li Yingjian have relatively weak ball control skills in lateral movement, which makes the team unable to carry the ball after the midfield. Reasonable possession of the ball can only speed up the attack.
At the end of the second half, in the 89th minute of the game, Kim Bong-gil rarely replaced Li Yingjian, who had just been replaced in the second half, with central defender Wang Weipu.
Jin Bongji replaced the two inverted fullbacks prematurely, making the team's midfielder completely passive. In the second half, Zhejiang Greentown team also had more threatening shots against the gate of Shaanxi Changan Athletic Team.
The speed of the defensive to attack determines the quality of the counterattack. Regardless of whether the counterattack is initiated in the own half or the opponent's half, "speed" is the core of the counterattack.
"Fast" here not only refers to the speed of the individual players, but also reflects the speed of passing and receiving the ball, and the players' judgment of the situation on the field.
