Wing Defence (2/7)

List item

The heart of the defence, the key distinction between wing defenders and those defending the goal is their inability to directly defend it. Switching the play and quickly turning defence into attack is an important requirement of a wing defender, with a typical game often being decided on a team’s ability to quickly get forward. Interceptions, blocking and man-marking remain focal points of a wing defender’s style of play.
