“Bowen is able to sneak in behind Rice and ahead of Gabriel.” He chose to designate the space rather than the man.”

“Gabriel does know where Bowen is, and he can mark him, he should mark him in reality.”

“Instead of the man, he goes to defend the space.” Bowen is the one who creates the harm and keeps the ball alive, while Soucek is the one who keeps it away.”
