Crossing Alley 1

“This drill encourages wide players to practice crossing the ball using both feet and gives your strikers practice at finishing crosses.”

SET UP

Area: 40 x 30 yards
Equipment: 6 Cones, 2 Goals
No. of Players: 9 Outfield, 2 Goalkeepers

THE STEPS

  1. The wide player dribbles to the opposite corner and crosses the ball.
  2. The attackers must use realistic movements to get into the box and attempt to score from the cross.
  3. Once a cross has been made, a different wide player dribbles straight away in the opposite direction to make a cross on the other goal.

ROTATION

  • The drill runs continually for a set period of time before the attackers and crossers switch roles.
