Organisation:
- Half football field + normal size goal
- 3 attacking players + Goalkeeper
 
Variations:

- When crossing, the winger should vary between the two attacking players, and the attackers may want to exchange passes.
- Attackers change the angle of their runs towards goal.
- Gradually add defenders to make the practice more difficult.
- From kick-off pass the ball backwards to another player and then follow the same procedure.

 
Tips:
- As this practice aims to quickly attack the opponents (to catch them unawares e.g. after a goal), the players should aim to move the ball forward as quickly and accurately as possible.
