Passing with Crosses and Goal Attempts Variation IV

  • Organisation

    Set up a cone box as shown. Each cone should be occupied by a player. Three further players should be positioned as follows: Two players to the side of the 18 yard box, one player to the side of the goal on the goal line. (1) Goal attempt (2) Cross paths
  • Process

    Player A starts by passing a cross-field pass to player C. C lays the ball of to D who in turn hits a cros-field pass to player B. Player B passes to A who sets up player C for a shot at goal. As soon as C has taken his shot, player B sprints into the box and crosses with player C who has now taken up a new position and then either finishes a: a) cross from G b) cross from E or c) a backpass from F. EVery polayer then moves on one position.
  • Tip

    - The player waiting for the ball should always make a short, quick dummy run away from the ball before receiving it. - The passes should be played hard along the ground - The player should lift his foot slightly when laying the ball off - Timing is important when making runs in the box - The corses and backpasses should be hit hard
  • Field size
