Football: Long Shots Outside of the Area

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Goalkeeper advances towards the server.
  • Receives a pass into feet from the server.
  • Goalkeeper then plays a first time ball back to the server.
  • Goalkeeper to retreat back to the best position they can get into before the ball is struck for a shot at goal. 
  • Rotate goalkeepers and servers.

COACHING POINTS

  • As the goalkeeper is out of position the danger is not the space in front but the ball over the top.
  • Goalkeeper to use fast footwork to get into set position in time to make the save. Smaller faster steps means the goalkeeper will not collapse backwards and can get into set position faster if the shot comes early.
  • On the retreat the goalkeeper should retreat away from the ball down the line.

PROGRESSION

  • Introduce a secondary shot.
  • Goalkeeper does 3 sets.
