Another characteristic of Hegerberg is the feints she uses during her unmarking movements to get defenders confused and be able to get an advantage in the play. This is very important in strikers, especially in crossing situations, when defenders are mostly focused on the ball and have difficulties reading the unmarking movements of their direct opponent.
With this movement, Olympique Lyonnais’ star manages to get to the ball before the defenders, who are expecting Hegerberg to attack a different space, and therefore often react late when the ball gets into the box. As we can see in the pictures, she starts a movement towards the far post which causes the PSG defender to follow her movement. This creates immediately a space to attack in the near post, which Hegerberg uses to shoot and create a clear chance.
