In the same sense that wide receivers are considered “deep threats,” wingers can be used in a similar fashion.

A good team uses the wingers most effectively by playing them balls to the corners and having the wingers then cross the balls back into the middle.

Both Percy and Richardson possess extreme speed, which would allow their teammates to play them long balls over the top of the defense which they could then secure and put back into play in the middle.
