Lagerbäck on strikers

Lars Lagerbäck on the traits that make a goalscorer.
Former Sweden coach Lars Lagerbäck marks out the ability to be in the right place at the right time as the main attribute of a traditional striker. Technique and finishing, Lagerbäck says, are also particularly important, though more than simply scoring goals is required of a modern centre-forward.
