Finishing opportunities created by overlapping runs (20 mins)

Finishing opportunities created by overlapping runs

1 .The central player passes to the wide player and overlaps. The wide player receives & allows the central player to overlap, now the wide player uses disguise & comes inside to shoot

2 .The wide player passes to the overlapping central player who shoots

3. Now the wide player passes to the forward who passes to the central player to shoot/cross

Keys areas of coaching are (1) coming inside to allow the overlap (2) going slow enough to allow the overlapping runner time to go outside.

Ask the players these questions.

- What is an overlapping run?

- How can it help us?

Does he have to use the runner? Or can you go alone?

3v2 Overlap (20 mins)

Three attackers v two defenders. The central player starts with the ball and passes wide before making an overlapping run. The wide player can decide to use the overlap and pass to the outside for the central player to shoot or cross for the opposite wide player. Alternatively the wide player can use the run and show disguise to dribble inside to shoot or combine with the opposite wide player.

IND - Can you create space for a team mate with a run?

Organisation -

Two teams.

When inside the opponents half can you encourage overlapping runs. This movement off the ball will not always be used but it will definitely create space for someone to receive a pass or dribble. This is because the defenders will be pulled out of position by the runs made. Any goals scored in this way should be awarded double goals.
