Sir Bobby Robson

England international footballer and manager

‘This is one of England’s routine corner kicks in the 1990 World Cup campaign. The corner comes from the right-hand side, taken left-footed by Waddle. There are three alternative areas to hit (shown shaded) and the target area is signalled by Waddle. The England players are named, the white arrows are their expected movements and the blue crosses are their markers. Lineker waits at the back post for the long ball or to pick up a deflection. The three things I used to say we needed for the corner kick were service, movement and desire.’
