I was wondering about our top wingers.

Chukwueze is a left footer who generally plays on the right

Kalu is a right footer who generally plays on the left

I understand that this makes it easier for them to cut in and shoot on their preferred foot

BUT does this mean the quality of their crossing will be poorer than if they played on the other wing?

Would Oshimen receive better service if we had Kalu on the right and Samu on the left?

Thoughts?

The setup is good the way it is. It much better to cut inside and try to shoot or provide through passes

I HAVEN'T LOOKED AT THIS, BUT...


...if what you are saying is so, while they may be able to shoot better with their main foot, the ability to cross is denied. Don't kid yourself, crossing is still important. The solution might be to develop kids to have the "other foot" able to do rudimentary things. How does a pro player not take the time to work on his "other foot"?

Marc Overmas played Left wing, with a right foot. But the OP has a point.
