From Hattrick

Players with the head speciality can feature in special events during a match.

  • Defenders and inner midfielders with the head specialty are somewhat sluggish and can be easily defeated by an opponents technical winger or forward, thus giving them a chance to score. However, this event is compartively rare.
  • Wingers and forwards are capable of scoring directly with a header from a cross by a winger.

The higher the number of head specialists in your team, and the lower the number of head specialists among your opponent's, the better your chances to score from a corner.

Head is generally regarded as one of the best specialities in the game.
