Inverted Winger

An inverted winger (inside-out winger) shows diagonal movement far more often than conventional wingers. The advantages of such a type of player have been discovered due to the narrowness of central space, and the likes of Lionel Messi and Arjen Robben have shown the right way to fill that particular role. The frequent attack pattern of an inverted winger is cutting inside from the wing, which can be completed by a shot attempt with the strong foot or an accurate through ball played at an angle of ninety degrees.
