Crossing the ball – A technique of the past?

Goal - The game of soccer in the last few decades has evolved from a more direct style to a more possessive type of soccer. Some teams have achieved success playing counterattack soccer, notably Chelsea and Corinthians (which made it to the FIFA Club World Cup final) while others have opted for long-ball tactics, such as Stoke City. However, the road to success in the last few years shows that possession is the key to the game, most notably mastered by Barcelona and Spain's national team. (Industry)
