Clinical Finishing

Clinical Finishing

Clinical Finishing: Today we are going to talk about the adjective ‘clinical‘ which is often used to describe a team’s performance in football. The basic meaning here is related to how efficient a team is with respect to their performance and particularly in front of goal – so we often use this adjective with the word ‘finishing‘ – ‘clinical finishing‘. In this week’s Champions League group match between Spurs and Monaco, Spurs missed some good chances in their defeat – they were not so clinical in their finishing. Monaco, on the other hand, had two shots on target and scored with both of them – they were clinical in their finishing. Clinical finishing.

  • Example: German World Cup star Gerd Muller was a clinical finisher – he made goal scoring appear easy.
