1) The C/M passes into front man and runs into forward space taking blue midfielder with him, as he does this the other red C/M times run around back and

The wide player needs to time his run inside to take full back away and allow full back to advance forward into space for a cross.

Encourage blue full back to decide what he does, either track winger or go with full back, this makes the C/M passing decision more realistic, either pass into winger coming inside for a shot or full back for a cross.
