Best Answer


it can vary a lot, sometimes you need to lay the ball to the winger and then go in the semi circle to wait for a cross

may be to hold to ball deep in their territory

or to dribble and score

but mainly its scoring goals and assisting other players

remember as long as you score or assist someone then you have done your job

chase after every ball you can
