Score like Aguero in the 6 yard box

Attacking

If you want your strikers to be as lethal as Kun Aguero around the penalty area, try this session to help them develop that magic touch.This is a fantastic attacking game for getting strikers to make runs behind the defence and to get outfield players to look for space to play the ball into.

Why use it

Timing runs to meet the ball and beat a player is one of Aguero’s main attributes. He is lethal when the ball is played through into space and he can work his magic.

Giving players the chance in training to practise this art will help them to do it in matches.

Set-up

Set up a 40×20-yard pitch split into a central zone of 20 yards and two end zones of 10 yards. We’ve used 13 players. You need bibs, balls, cones and two normal goals.

How to play

Use two teams of six, with four attackers, one defender and one goalkeeper on each.

Play 4v4 in the central zone plus one neutral player who plays for the team in possession. A defender and goalkeeper start in the end zones.

Players stay in their starting zones until a pass is played into one of the end zones for a player to run onto.

If the pass into the end zone is played first time (one touch) any resulting goal counts as double.
