Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Players on the wing run with the ball down the side of the pitch before crossing for an attacker who has ran into the area, usually at the far post.

Attackers begin further back than the wingers and in line with the corner of the penalty area. Once the coach blows his whistle, the attacker must sprint at full speed to reach the area and get on the end of the cross.

Coaching points

Look for good crossing technique, curling the ball away from the goalkeeper.

Get players communicating, with attackers shouting for where they want the ball crossed in to.

Progression

Can potentially add a defender into the penalty area who could pressure but not challenge the attacker, or could jump with them.

Defender can also be put on the wing to pressure the winger when crossing so they are used to real match situations and crossing under pressure.
