This attacking crossing and finishing practice has a clear focus on developing possession and effective movement in the final third. Our set up shows us using half a pitch with 3 areas as shown with 15 x 10 yard dimensions. In each deeper area, we have a 2 v 1 replicating CM and inside FB players v Opposition MF player and in our advanced area we have our single striker against a single defender, with wide players rotating in each channel.
