Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Player 2 sets up player 1 to hit a diagonal ball to player 3, before this player lays the ball back to player 4 who moves onto ball at match pace and hits a cross into either the near or far posts.

Players 5 and 6 move onto ball to finish, while the crossers may recycle ball if it comes wide, by crossing it back into the box.

Repeat the drill from the other side.

Coaching points

Look for the drill to be done at match pace, nothing lazy and quick movement and passes.

Ensure crosses are of a good quality and hitting their target.

Progression

Game can be progressed by adding a goalkeeper who can come and claim crosses, or a defender who can challenge the attackers.

Players not involved in the drill could also become defenders who could close the crossers down and put them under pressure like in a real match situation.
