Hi everyone. This is football (soccer). I'm a bit perplexed at the verb "drop" in the following sentence. Since there is a lot of its meanings, I decide to interpret it as "to quit". Am I right?

73' Rooney has dropped a bit deeper, taking Januzaj's now vacant spot, to allow Chicharito to act as the lone striker up top. The skipper gets on the ball straight away and wins a free kick as Mechele commits a foul, picking up a yellow card in the process.
