This is about your front two hunting down the ball, winning it and attacking together. It’s great for encouraging attackers to develop a relationship so communication is effective and scoring chances are increased. MORE

FOUR SHOT ROULETTE
“Hit the target” • “Good first touch” • “Look up before you shoot” • “Understand where to move”
Create a 30 x 20 yards area– you’ll need two goals, two goalkeepers, a striker and four servers – one on each corner of the area. Number the servers 1 to 4, anti-clockwise as shown. Place a cone in the centre – this is the starting point.
Server 1 plays the ball into the centre where the striker controls with his first touch then shoots with his second.
The striker then turns and moves quickly to a pass from server 3 on the opposite side of the area and repeats the task.
He then returns to the centre for a pass from server 2, but this time the striker must dribble and go 1v1 with the goalkeeper. He then quickly turns for a pass from server 1, controls and shoots.
In the final test the striker must shoot first time from passes by servers 3 and 4 – no controlling touch allowed.
Remember to rotate your players regularly so that everyone gets a chance to hone their striking skills.
