Creating Chances From Wide Areas: Skill Practice

Set-up half a field and, if necessary, mark out a penalty area.

Add a large goal on one end-line and two small goals/gates on the halfway-line.

Add a gate in each of the wide areas.

6 attackers (3 midfielders and 3 attackers / 4 midfielders and 2 attackers) start with the ball at the halfway-line and try to score in the large goal.

3 defenders protect the penalty area. If they win the ball they can score in either of the small goals.

Progressions

Attackers have to play through one of the gates in the wide areas before they can score.

Guided Questions

  • Why would you play wide instead of direct to goal?
  • What is an early cross/late cross?
  • How does your teammate know you are ready to play the ball into the scoring zone?
