Game with extra free kicks

Play a normal game, but on coach's call there's an immediate free kick for team in possession.

Add in random corners as well.

Free kicks -

Attacking team: If ball is not in final 1/3, take quick. If ball is in final 1/3, quick option is still an option but must read play.

Defensive team: 1 defender stands on ball and walks back. Rest of team recovers centrally and behind ball. In final 1/3: Make a wall (2, 3, 4 players), set offside line at the wall.

Corners:

Defense: Both posts are covered. Someone on 6 yard box to stop short corner.

Attack: Short corner option - 2 players go to corner. Pass and overlap.
