COACHING SESSION: ATTACKING FREE-KICK 2
 

1) The ball is played out by the kicker to his right.

2) Yellow moves onto the ball and pretends to shoot but instead plays the ball through to his team-mate who is next to the wall. He feints to move towards the kicker but instead moves forwards onto the pass. His team-mates on the edge of the area (to the kickers right) drag their markers away to create more space.

3) He scores with a first-time shot into the corner.

Tips:

- Concentrate on the delivery of the passes, speed, angle etc and on the quality of the shot - always hit the target.
- The player who goes to shoot but in fact plays the ball forwards must really emphasise that he is the one to shoot in order to fool the defence before playing the ball through to his team-mate.

- The player in the wall who moves off the wall must be careful to time his movements in order not to be caught offside. His team-mates on the side of the penalty area must try to drag their markers away to create more space for the pass.
