Forward Passing & Support Play | Skill Practice (43-P3)

Set Up / Organisation
Our Beckham based Crossing and Finishing theme, begins with this technical practice. Based on a 442 attacking situation, we begin with crosses from the right hand channel with a quick combination between full back and winger. 2 Strikers make crossover runs to attack the crosses in the box, before a second combination produces a cross at the opposite end for another 2 attacking players to attack. Work both sides to ensure you develop left and right footed crosses.
