Winger crosses to one of the Attacking players who can either pass the ball to the other Attacker or take a shot.

If Blue team win the ball then they can go for goal although they don't have the same wide options.

 

COACHING POINTS

You can allow a Defender or winger to move in to the Attacker's box to create a 3 vs 2 overload

Red Attacker who has been passed the ball may pull back and let other Attacker have a shot at goal.

 

  • 1 striker can look to make near post run, get across Defender
  • Other striker pull out to give Defender a problem!

Look again at type of cross (pace across face, pull back or chipped to far post)
