The striker opened his teams account by taking on 2 players before scoring a powerful close range header.


Would someone care to shed some light on what this is meant to mean?

How exactly do you take on 2 players and then score with a close range header:confused:

It doesn't say he had the ball when he took on the two players. Mebee he took them on and then got in position for a cross and a close-range header. Or maybe he out-jumped 2 players to win the header. Or maybe he punched a defender and the goalkeeper first and then headed home!

It's quite simpe really;

He goes past 2 players, passes the ball, and makes a run into the box. A cross comes in, and there he is to head home.

took on two players may mean that the ball was crossed and he was being shadowed by two players?

Or maybe it's just twaddle.

i guess we'll only know for sure if the original poster tells us exactly how the goal was scored.

Look at the famous Jamie Pollock OG.

He beat two QPR forwards before heading it over his own keepers head from 20 yards to relegate his team.

Now its never going to happen at the correct end though.

Maybe it was showboating. Took two players on before, on the goal line, getting to his hands and knees and rolling it in with his head :D

A long ball. He beats his defender, gets clear away, rounds the 'keeper .. and the other team are so disheartened that they give up on the play and cease chasing him. Seeing this, he has enough time to stop on the six, lift it into the air for himself, and score with the header.

George Best admitted that he tried to do this once, but the ball crossed the line before he could get to his knees

Maybe it was a seal dribble - wasn't Kerlon or Braaten was it? ;)
