Play Like Poland – Star Man: Lewandowski

1. Finishing

1v1

  • 2 goals, 4 gates, 1 pole/2 teams
  • Players have 1 football each
  • Player 1 runs with the ball, once passed the half way line they can shoot
  • As soon as the shot has been taken the first player from gate 2 attacks the opposite goal. Player 1 must recover around the back of the pole and try and put pressure on the attacker.
  • RULE: shoot/defend/collect ball/re-join same queue
  • From gates 1 + 2 = right foot only
  • Gates 3 + 4 = left foot only
  • COMPETITION: first team to 5 goals wins

Key Tips

  • Run with the ball – eyes up (assess goalkeeper’s starting position)
  • Shoot across the goal
  • Be fast on the transition from queue/attack and attack to defence
  • Strike with the laces where appropriate

2. 1 v 1

1v1

  • 4 poles/1 goal/1 goalkeeper
  • 1 v 1
  • Coach calls a number between 1 and 4
  • The feeder associated with the number must pass to the attacker who looks to finish
  • If the defender wins’ possession they can score into the same goal
  • Each attacker gets 4 attempts
  • Players rotate roles x 2

Key Tips

  • Feeders play with their eyes up
  • Attackers create space with clever/dynamic movement
  • Choose the foot furthest away from the defender to shoot with
  • If the attacker cannot finish off 1 touch encourage them to face the defender in a 1 v 1 situation and look to beat them
  • Defend well/spoil the ball/win it clearly and counter attack
  • Use the defender as a blocker to the sight of the goalkeeper
  • Finish into the corners

3. Small Pitch Game

1v1

  • Short but wide pitch
  • 2 goals/2 teams
  • Balls in each goal for high tempo
  • First team to 5 goals

Key Tips

  • Shoot on sight
  • Have fun!
