Organisation:

Set of footballs in both goals

Reds in GK-2-2, Blues in GK-2-2 (+4 Floaters -F)

Instructions: Using half pitch, goalkeepers serve ball to floaters who then either combine with each other or deliver a cross to attacking players

Progressions:

- Floaters can join in and attacking create overloads (maximum allowed is 4v2)

- If team score after a cross then they retain possession and attack the opposite goals

Coaching points:

- Quality of the pass/cross (remember a cross is a pass!)

- Angles to receive the ball

- Can strikers improvise and set up shots for wingers?

- Remember, it is about finishing so power is not necessary primaryy option (placemen!)

- Type of runs in the box

- Types of crosses

Organisation:

Full width and 75 yards long

Set of footballs in both goals

Reds in GK-3-4-1

Blues in GK-3-3-2

Instructions:

Play normal game without corner kicks and throw ins

Conditions:

- Both teams need to play the ball wide before a shot

- A goal from a cross counts as 2 goals

- If a winger score inside the 18 yard box, counts 2 goals

- A goal inside the 6 yard box counts as 5 goals

Coaching points:

* If winger is in possession of the ball

- If there is opportunity to cross, then he should cross the ball with pace and bending it either to forwards feet or head

- Can the winger drive with ball to bye line and provide a bacwards pass ball towards either penalty spot or towards the D

- CF, number 10 and opposite winger need to attack front post, penalty spot and back post

- Back 3 need to push high on the field (just over centre circle) and need to be aware of possible transitions

- Deep layer should dictate the D area

* Full back with ball

- Depending on his first touch, the other 2 players need to move along accordingly, in particular the opposite full back (infield touch require width and a touch to touchline require tucking in for defensive balance)

- Movement of the winger depend on direction of play of full back. Whatever the scenario he need to be available to receive the pass

- CF need to be in the same half than full back with possession (use penalty spot and half way line spot as imaginary line as guidance)

*CF with ball

- Midfielders need to provide passing angles and might need to make runs in behind the defenders

- If CF manage to open up a gap between two defenders, then a pass to number 10 require a straight shot

* Ball centrally (either CB or number 10 with it)

- Remaining players should always make pitch wide and long
