How many times have you heard the crowd shout "SHOOT!" when players like Aguero, Aubameyang or Rashford are bearing down on goal? That's because the occasional long range effort can have the keeper unaware before the ball is past them.
Sometimes the pitch opens up, defenders are backing off and the best option is simply for your player to put their laces through the ball and have a pop on goal from distance. By catching the opposition off guard and getting a clean connection, your team can score some spectacular goals!
That's what this week's session is designed to do - to encourage your players to take the opportunity to strike when they're presented with it! Power is a bonus but the main aim here is for your players to get their strikes on target - to test the keeper and create rebounds for your players to pounce onto!
Develop your defenders understanding of how to channel the attackers away from danger areas to slow down attacks and isolate the opposition players.
Teach all your players how to stand up and resist the temptation to dive in. Instead jockey players and wait for the right moment to make the interception!
Drum in the defensive roles and responsibilities of your players and make sure they understand what you want from them in order to win the ball back and turn defence into attack.
Develop your players understanding of space and how their movement (or even lack of at times) can create space to play in the midfield.
Create a resolution to develop your coaching confidence by seizing the opportunity to discover new drills, turn ideas into action and seek advice from the coaching community.
