FM 2017 Strikers Duties

The striker or forward need to think and be faster than their opponents to score as a striker. Striker will need to get the ball and run as faster than the defender to score or dribble before scoring. Dribbling skills have been known to help strikers outmanoeuvre defenders and even goalkeepers.

The best position for the striker is staying close to the opponent’s 18-yard box.  Striker, do not need to shift their position so much. Instead, he just have to know where their opponent’s defenders are positioned and their goal keeper’s weakness.

They also help FM17 Defenders

The best FM 2017 strikers, may help to defend in case the ball is in their half of the field. They do that by just being ready to take the ball and run from their half of the fielder and towards the opponent’s goal line to score. That means their defence is just strategic.

He must not try to displace their defenders. That is because the moment they get the ball, they will try to kick it away from their half of the field, hoping the striker will be there to take over. The striker will be expected to take advantage of the fact that more of the opponents are on their side and try to score.

Play Forward

Striker also need to help the midfielders get the ball away from the half of the field to the opponents half. He does that by playing wide and stretching out the opponents defence capabilities. That allows him as a striker to sprint forward and meet on a few of their opponents as he tries to score.

That may sound easy, but it needs to have a lot of speed and stamina to run faster and be a team player. Striker or forward should not chase the ball every time the opponents have it. Let the midfielders do that for him. They should save their stamina and let the midfielders get the ball and pass it to him. They expect that once the striker have the ball, he will run straight through the opponent’s defences, dribbling, and score.

Other Crucial Striker Skills

Strikers and forwards need to know how to handle the ball correctly. That is because the defender’s main job is to take the ball from him as soon as he have it. Knowing how to dribble and avoid losing the ball, will allow strikers to get many scoring opportunities. They also need to know how to score by “heading” the ball past the goalie.
