Passing with Crossing and Goal Attempts Variation III

  • 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

    The drill starts with a one-two between player A and player D. A passes the laid-off ball diagonally to C who lays the ball off to D. D passes diagonally to B and at the same time C sprints to the right hand corner of the 18 yard box where he receives a pass from B and takes a shot at goal. Immediately after the goal attemt, B sprints into the box and crosses positions with C who has positioned himself ready for the next move and then they either finishe a: a) cross from G b) cross from E or c) a backpass from F. Every player then moves on one position.
  • Tip

    4 cones, - 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
