Football Drill Demonstration

Description

With the signal given by a player and then the corner taker, the ball is delivered to the signal-giver at the front post. This player then plays a 1,2 with the corner taker, who then crosses the ball to the back post.

Here, one of three players who have made a run from the edge of the box should be able to attack the ball. The rest of the team should make runs to create space and time for the pass to happen.

Coaching points


The two players defending should mark and cover each other accordingly and depending on how many attackers the other team leaves up, they can recruit additional defenders.

Your team can choose their own signal, as an example, the kicker can raise two hands to say they will aim for the back post, or one hand for the front post.

Choose a system that works for your team and stick with it.
