Striker Movement Drill (10 mins)

Striker Play in a 4-4-2

Initial Play starting from 10 yards inside each half - length 65m

A passes the ball to B (opposite movement to give him space)

B plays pass to C (opposite movement to gain time + space for next pass)

C holds ball until D runs round face when he lays it off for D to strike.

Progression 1

E passes to F (Opposite movement to offer space)

F begins to drive at centre back, G spins to create space for F to drive.

F commits the defender and plays pass to H who has timed his run to get ball in the space

Phase of Play Option 1 (5 mins)

Phase of Play Option 1

CB plays bounce pass for CM

CB then plays pass to RM (opposite movement)

RM will play a well weighted pass for ST1 who has pinned the defender in. ST2 will lose his marker and run across the face for a lay off from ST1 and strike at goal

What if situation

ST2 is too far away from ST1 so instead looks to make same movement before stopping and having ball played through by ST1 on same side
