Crossing & Finishing

Set-up:

- Simulate a back frour using either Mannequins, Poles or Cones.

- Put players in tactical positions as shown. Use FB'S and Wingers on each side

- Always alternating sides

1. P1 starts with the ball and plays into P2's feet. P2 lays the ball back to P1. P1 plays a split pass into space for P3 (Winger or Full back). P2 spins out and attacks the box, weakside winger P5 and the center forward P4 attack the box.

2. P3 then crosses the ball in for the 3 attacking players.

Coaching Points:

- Quality of Entry Ball

- Check hard to the ball

- First touch into flank space

- Square up to the ball to strike (body around the ball)

- Pace/weight of cross

- If player goes into early then come out and recycle run and go in again

- Cue for players to make their runs into the box is when the player crossing picks thier head up

- Agressive movement in the box

- Attitude/accuracy to finish

- Awareness of GK
