Video 5: SWE - EGY
When the right back plays a pass to the left back, Sweden’s left number two defender runs from the non-ball side into the centre back’s zone and blocks the passing route to the left back. Note that in such situations, many defenders try to disrupt the fluidity of the game by committing a foul. However, Sweden’s number two defender does not commit a foul and instead uses good positioning to force the centre back to dribble the ball. Now, the attacking team play a risky pass to line. Sweden’s defender moves around the line player and manages to intercept the pass.
