Crossing & Finishing | Technical Practice (30-P1)

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. Ensure you have enough pairs that allow play to be continuous (3 attacking pairs and 4 wide players).
