Description

A favourite finishing session of mine discovered via Nike Training and the coaching staff of Barcelona.  It involves short passing to get into the box, movement and quick decision making. Encourages players to make decisions by looking around them to know, where the space is, where support is and where the goal is before receiving the ball inside the penalty box.

Forwards Playing Underneath One Another

Organization

3 Players & 2 mannequins/flags to replace a GK if not available.

Player 'A' starts about 5yds outside the penalty boxy. Player 'B' is on the top of the penalty box. Player 'C' is in line with the penalty spot. The cones are about 1.5yds inside the goalpost, 5yds apart.

Starting Point

Play always starts with Player 'A' rolling the ball out of his/her feet. Rotation is A to B to C to A.

Action

Player 'A' plays a pass to 'B' who plays a pass back to 'A'. Player 'B' quickly decides to move to either cone. Player 'C' must move to the opposite side as 'B' and receive a pass from 'A'. Player 'A' plays a pass to 'C' who lays it off for 'B' (first time if possible) to finish (within 1 touch if possible) into the target areas. 

Coaching Points

Reading the movement (scan shoulders), Creating Space (Open Body to receive), Preparing to play 1 touch, Accurate Finish (pass the ball into the net inside the box)
