Video 9: ESP - ISL
Against Iceland’s six-against-six positional attack without goalkeeper (empty goal), Spain act very offensively right from the start to immediately pressure the attack. The offensive defenders still manage to quickly fall back and prevent the centre back from breaking through.
After the free throw, the centre back crosses with the line player. When the right back has the ball, the forward one and right number two defenders block the direct passing routes. This disrupts the timing and provokes a technical fault from the attack.
