‘COMBINATIONS AND FINISHING‘ Aim: To combine technical, tactical and fitness elements into a finishing exercise. Rules: – A player from each line plays a one-two and shoots at goal. – The same players immediately take part in a 2v2 challenge, with a cross from the right. – The same players continue forward and repeat the 2v2 challenge, this time with a cross from the left. – The players then return to the back of their original line; – The practice continues with the next two attackers. Timing: At a top professional club, this can last up to 45 minutes. The target is for each player to complete ten runs. (The goals tally of each player is recorded). Coaching: – Work on combinations and finishing. – Develop twin-striker movement and finishing (usually in the air) from well-delivered crosses. – Maintain quality, despite intensity.
