The strikers and attackers are the match winners. They are the players the coach turns to, to win the game, which is why the striker (9), wingers (7 and 11), and attacking midfielders;(10), are arguably the most important players in a football team.
So, what traits make a great striker? What should a young player work on to enhance their overall value to a coach?
Without a doubt, confidence is the key. We see it time and time again. When a player's confidence is down they stop scoring, but when a player's confidence is up the goals are plentiful.
