Football: Crossing and Finishing

The 'My Stuff' feature is amazing! It's a coach's best friend!

DESCRIPTION

The set up in the diagram shows how to set up for a left sided drill,  but can be copied onto the right side.

This drill requires quality passes to play rom the center out to the sides and create a cross oppurtunity, which will set up a shot.

The ball starts at the center with player 1. It is passed on to player 2 who lays it of for 1 to pass long to 3. Player 3 turns and plays the ball to player 4. It is dribbled towards the box and crossed to either 1 or 2 who shot.

COACHING POINTS

  • Quality of the passes
  • Recieve the play onto your outside foot (as if protecting the ball from a defender)
  • Player 3 to turn outwards before passing
  • Player 4 starts run as player 1 passes to player 3
  • Communication when recieving the cross 
  • Time the runs to recieve the cross in the right area.
