COACHING SESSION: ATTACKING FREE-KICK 3
 

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

2) Yellow kills the ball as if he is laying it up for a shot. His team-mate moves on to the ball and pretends to shoot before actually chipping it over the wall.

3) The attacker on the edge of the wall breaks off, moves onto the chipped pass and volleys first-time into the net.

Tips:

- Concentrate on the delivery of the passes - speed, flight, 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 over the wall must really emphasise that he is the one to shoot in order to fool the defence before playing the ball through.

- 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 even more space.
