Coaching Points:

When and when not to use lofted pass

Pass between 1+2 is not appropriate distance for lofted pass

Pass between 2+3 is appropriate distance. Ball travels faster in air, and is harder to defend. Try to lead player so that prep touch and cross are faster

Pass between 3+4 is Appropriate distance. Ball travels faster in air, and is harder to defend. Try to lead striker so that finishing is easier. Also mention possibility of own goal or corner.
