This attacking and finishing drill, “Score and assist”, challenges an attacker to score a goal before spinning around to lay off a pass from his team mate and create a second opportunity.
The attacker needs to react quickly to make the pass and ensure that he follows up the second shot to capitalise on any rebounds off the goalkeeper.
You need to set up an area 40 yards long by 30 yards wide, and you need two cones, a goal with two outfield players and a goalkeeper.
- Player 1 dribbles and shoots at goal.
- Immediately player 1 spins and plays a wall pass for player 2 to shoot at goal.
- Player 1 then follows the shot in order to shoot from any rebounds off of the goalkeeper or posts.
The players switch roles for the next attack.
This drill is taken from the manual Soccer Attack! by Michael Beale which contains 80 shooting and finishing drills.
