FM inside forward role:
The inside forward aims to cut inside from the flanks and run directly at the centre of the opposition’s defence and works best when the player’s strongest foot is opposite to the flank he is playing on.
This movement can open up space for overlapping full backs as well as overloading a retreating defender, although it can also end up with the player running into cul-de-sacs.
With a support duty the inside forward will cut diagonally into the space behind the defence and play through balls or take long shots if the opportunity arises.
With an attack duty, the inside forward will run directly at the defence with the options of shooting, passing or crossing as he moves into the final third.
Inside forward must be physically strong and fast to cut inside from flanks. Of course finishing and composure are also important. It is a forward after all and must score goals.
Do you have great playmakers with high vision and passing attributes? Then better make sure your inside forwards are good at off the ball in order to receive killer balls.
