Football: 1-2 and cross

Sportplan is a very helpful resource and I really enjoy the wonderful...

DESCRIPTION

Set up as shown.

Player 1 starts with the ball in the middle of the field and plays a 1-2 pass with player 2 before passing out wide to player 3.

At this point, players 1 and 2 run towards the penalty area, ready to receive a cross, while one of the defenders goes out wide to put pressure on the crosser.

Player 3 will cross the ball into the box where players 1 and 2 will try to beat the defender to it and score.

COACHING POINTS

Look for good quality of passing, drill should be done at match pace.

Get defenders to put pressure on attackers, both in the box and when crossing, looking for good quality crossing under pressure, which wingers will be put under in real games.

PROGRESSION

Can add a goalkeeper to the drill making attackers put more effort into their headers when meeting cross, and can also add another defender so that it is 2 v 2 in the box.
