Soccer training – Goal shots - One-Two And Short Pass

Soccer drill procedure

Now, players (and the soccer coach) should be ready to make the sequence a little more difficult. This shouldn’t be a big problem after our introductory drill. The pass to a teammate is hard to time, because it is made opposite the direction of movement. Too much pressure on the ball could mean that the receiver runs past the ball or has problems taking the ball.


The starting player has a ball and starts to dribble. The groups take turns of being in control of the ball. The player from the other group runs towards the dribbler and gets the ball. Then, a short reception of the ball and a shot on goal. Both players join the opposite group. Keep increasing this drill’s pace.
