Great goal after 15 passes from the goal: this is how Southampton plays football [VIDEO]

The Boxing Day of the Premier league It took place this Sunday and left several games with many goals. One of the most exciting matches took place at London Stadium in London, when the local West Ham received Southampton, a team that arrived with great needs to win. The style of play of both clubs caused a game with many spaces, which the visit took advantage of.

Soton, since the arrival of coach Ralph Hasenhüttl, has stood out in the English league for his good team combination, although at times the results were not positive. Despite this, the team did not renounce the coach’s idea and on this date, based on following the plan, they built a great goal.

Around 8 minutes, goalkeeper Fraser Forster made a series of short passes with his defenders, Jan Bednarek and Mohammed Salisu, until he extended possession on the right wing, where Kyle Walker-Peters waited. However, the side was well marked when it reached rival territory and gave the ball to the middle, causing a new sequence of short touches.

Mohamed Elyounoussi received and played with Oriol Romeu, who had to return to the centrals and then, with the previous participation of Nathan Redmond, to the goalkeeper. Finally, the goalkeeper made a high serve to the middle of the field, where Valentino Livramento imposed conditions on the airway and James Ward-Prowse controlled.

The captain raised his head and, taking advantage of the fact that the West Ham squad was only running in a disorderly way, he found Walker-Peters on the left, with plenty of space. However, the side did not overflow or take a center, but looked for Elyounoussi, who finished off from the crescent of the area.

The ball passed Lukasz Fabianski and happiness was unleashed in Southampton, as patience led them to break the parity. The team made a total of 15 passes before inflating the nets and nine of the 11 starters participated: only Theo Walcott and Armando Broja did not intervene.
