Crossing and Finishing Part 1

30 long / 60 wide

Ball starts with GK who rolls it out to the left or right. In the example it is rolled to player A who switches to the opposite winger. Both A and B make attacking runs into the box to meet the cross from the driving winger.

The play then starts with the opposite GK. It is essential that the GK's vary which side they feed to so that all 4 wide players are involved.

Rotation

A and B join the back of the lines on the side of the goal they just attacked. Wide players can be rotated every few minutes if needed

Coaching Points

- Weight, timing and accuracy of pass wide and cross

- Timing and effectiveness of attacking runs

- Type of finish depending on the situation
