Technically Talking: Analyzing Theo Walcott’s Goal against West Ham

SWOL at related • 0 views

After breaking down Olivier Giroud's equalizer against West Ham, we now shift our focus to Theo Walcott's winner in the same match. Giroud's goal was typical Arsenal in that it put on display sharp and efficient passing combined with great movement off the ball. It was also atypical Arsenal getting the ball into a wide position then scoring from a cross.
