Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on interaction between a target player and a midfielder for a shot or cross. There is an entire series building up to this and going further on the DVD Winning Shooting & Finishing.
The first player starts just inside the center circle (this would be the midfielder) and the second player is the target player who starts wide of the 18. There is a keeper in goal.
The target player goes toward the middle of the field and then checks to the ball.
The midfielder plays the ball in and then follows the pass
The target player lays the ball off and then spins out wide
The midfielder then plays the ball into the space for the target player to run onto. The midfielder then sprints toward the top of the 18
The target player has the option of shooting or, if the ball has been played too deep so there isn’t a good angle, the target player can chop the ball back to the midfielder to shoot first time from the top of the 18
There is an entire series building up to this and going further on the DVD Winning Shooting & Finishing.
Have a great day!
