I know next to nothing about soccer. Like there’s nothing, and then I’m sitting right there next to it. But, the New York Times provides an explanation of the U.S. women’s current offense-focused strategy with some simple diagrams and a video, and I feel a little more edumacated.

I like the particular frame above that shows the gaps and seams that players try to attack. Basketball uses the same terminology, so I’m familiar, but this is the first time I’ve seen it so concretely.
