Craig Levein credits assistant with Hearts’ set-piece prowess
Of the 32 teams at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, 15 scored at least 50 per cent of their goals from set-pieces. Five of the 11 goals scored in the quarter-finals, and two of the four scored in the semi-finals, came that way, while England’s tally of nine set-piece goals set a new World Cup record, overtaking Portugal’s return in 1966 by one.
It underlined a growing trend for goals from deadball situations and in a league where teams meet each other as often as they do in the Scottish Premiership, free-kicks and corners are recognised as a key area where players can still provide an element of surprise. Which is why Hearts research and practise them so diligently, according to manager Craig Levein, who saw his men take the lead from another well-worked effort against Partick Thistle in their Scottish Cup quarter-final last week.
