Attacking Movements
This session on attacking movements and combination plays to score, was submitted by Michael Beale, coach of the U10 Academy team for Chelsea F.C. of the
English Premier League.
Attacking and scoring goals is the ultimate aim of football. To score goals in a real match, players must possess qualities such as; pace, skill,
strength, creativity, imagination, awareness, technique, etc. Therefore, nishing practices must develop these qualities in order for the players to
maximize their goal-scoring potential.
I am a life long fan of Chelsea Football Club and hold Hernan Crespo in high regard for his performances in the 2005/6 season. Crespo has a
number of qualities. He can play as a solo striker or combine well in a partnership. He holds the ball up well for the team and can drop into a
deeper position to help in the build up. He scores with both feet and with his head and is capable of scoring spectacular goals from distance
and poachers goals in the penalty box. However, I believe that Crespo’s best quality is his movement o the ball. In my opinion he has the best
movement of any forward currently playing in Europe. He never stops making runs and is constantly on the move. He always works his defenders
concentration and often the only thing that lets him down is the lack of imagination and awareness from his team mates to pick out his clever
runs. In short, he inspired me to design practices that would inspire my players.
Movements to Receive – Warm-Up
This warm-up looks at movements to receive the ball in pairs. The players take turns
at using various movements to receive a pass from their team mates. The players
should be reminded that eye contact and communication is crucial in this exercise.
The players have a choice of four movements to be made:
Away and back to feet
Left to receive right and vice versa
Towards and receive in the space
Set and spin into space behind
Free Movements to Score
This practice helps the coach to see the imagination and creativity that the players
currently possess.
The forward can start anywhere along the defensive line. The mid elder makes a
movement to receive a pass and then turns to dribble at the defense. The forward
must now make a run to receive a through pass from the mid elder.
For the next attack the mid elder becomes the new forward.

Blindside Runs
This practice looks at the forward making blindside runs in order to gain a
goal-scoring opportunity.
To start, the mid elder dribbles and passes down the outside of the
defence for the forward to make a blindside run and score. The mid elder
then becomes the forward for the attack that’s going in the opposite
Hernan Crespo
This practice looks at the movements of the forward to get back onside
and receive a second opportunity to score. This practice was designed
around the new o side rule and in appreciation of Hernan Crespo who
regularly uses this type of movement. Ruud van Nistelrooy is another
good example for young players wanting to exploit these opportunities.
The forward must dribble and use a skill to beat the mannequin and then
shoot at goal. The forward must react immediately to get back onside in
order to receive a second through pass to score.
Pass and Move to Combine and Score
This practice forces the players to move after their initial pass in order to
support and combine with their team mates so they can create a
goal-scoring opportunity.
Player A passes to Player B who switches the ball to Player C. Player C
plays a give-and-go with Player A who has made a supporting run. Player
C receives the return pass and crosses for Player B who has made a run
into the box. If Player B cannot shoot one-touch then the player must set
back to Player A who has made a supporting run to the edge of the box.
