DESCRIPTION

Set out 5 x 15 yard channels in each corner of the area as shown in the diagram. Station one player in each channel. Play 2 v 2 in central area.

The goalkeeper serves the ball to one of his two teammates in the central area. The goal is to get the ball to either of your teams players stationed in a channel. This player delivers a crossed ball into the attacking area. The two attacking players stagger their runs into the near post, mid-goal and far post areas. Finish with a shot or header on goal.
Progression: When the wide player gets the ball in the channel the opposing wide player on his side of the field may run into his area to challenge the cross.

COACHING POINTS

  • The near post run should be at approximately a 45 degree angle. It is essential that the near post runner beats his defender to the ball.
  • The far post runner cuts around the decoy of the near post to attack the far post.
  • An attacker must exploit the space in the mid-goal area to challenge the goalkeeper.
  • Can the cross be played early behind the recovering defense.
