Football Practice Set Up: Striker & Winger Combination Play - Skill (1056-P2)

This attacking crossing and finishing practice focuses on developing possession and specifically runs from deeper areas to attack. Our set up contains a 5 v 5 possession area 30 x 20 yards, with 2 or 4 wide players ready to deliver in channel areas. Objective is for possession team to make 10 passes before scoring in either mini goal. If defending team wins possession they can break immediately with pass to wide players.
After pass into channel 2 players must attack the box, with 1 defending player recovering to create a 3 v 1 attacking overload in the final third (with supporting opposite wide player). Focus on movement in the box and various types of delivery from wingers.

Player Focus

Speed to counter - Forward runs (cross overs?) - Types of delivery - Player to player understanding



Key Coaching Questions:
  • How quickly can players counter attack from central areas - quality of releasing pass?
  • What type of runs can you make as a pair to be clinical and efficient in the final third?
Progression 1:
  • Wide players can now receive inside, with a forward runner joining in to deliver from wide area (rotation) 
Key Coaching Questions:
  • What effective positions can wide players take up in pockets and how does this influence forward run from deep?
  • What types of delivery and runs are effective in this scenario - can you get clear player to player understanding between you?
