One of the greatest prerequisite to being a great footballer and a striker most importantly is speed. True, there are a lot of other qualities a good footbballer should have like durability, stamina, strenght, tactical abilities and fast reflexes but do you remember watching a a match where there's a sudden counter attack and the striker is left to pursue a through pass against the defenders?? Now do you remember watching a striker dashing past these defenders like they were only jogging?
There are some players who have left us gaping at how fast they can run after the ball or should I say how fast they can make the defenfers eat the dust?? Watching the AFCON Third place match between Nigeria and Tunisia made me notice a player frok Nigeria with very great acceleration who posed to ve very dangerous when attacking - MUSA.. Man was so fast, the defenders had to get him off his feet as fast as they could.
