Dribbling

Nick dribbled well in open spaces; he struggled in the tight spots in/around the box  

Passing

he made too many one-touch flicks that were giveaways; he needs more 2-touch passing 
1st Touch

good first touch on the run (breakaways); poor first touch in tight spots 

Crossing

his serves didn’t have any care; too often he just whacked a hard cross into the box 

Finishing

earned a lot of scoring chances & a few of them well; was off-sides on a couple of his goals 

Heading

he struggled at consistently getting his headers on target

Communication

he yelled for the ball at inappropriate times & alerted the defenders to where he was running 

Executes Under Pressure 2

Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
Nick did well to earn a lot of scoring chances during the Combine.  He was fortunate on a few occasions that there were not assistant referees, because he was off-sides on a few of his scoring chances/goals.  He did well on breakaways to have an idea of how to score in different ways:  sometimes he’d shoot hard at the GK, other times he’d slot it in, and he had a couple of cheeky chips too.  He has to keep learning/watching the game to understand how to make different runs.  His hard diagonal runs that always look for the ball over the top will not be effective at the professional level.  Defenders in the pro game are too smart to get beat with balls over the top on every play.  He’ll have to be able to hold the ball up and play in midfielders before joining the attack again from deeper areas.  Nick has to learn how to change his speeds in the attacking third to lose to defenders and find open spaces to score goals in and around the box.  To be a pro, he has to work tirelessly on finishing (not just breakaways or shots from the top of the box) and on being cleaner with the ball.
