When you’ve got your back facing the goal, getting into a good shooting position on the edge of a congested area is tricky.
The best way to maximise your chances is by improving the precision of your turning – and that’s where this neat drill from MyPersonalFootballCoach.com comes in.
Lay out a square cone in front of the area and run towards the edge of the box, while a teammate pings the ball into the square. Take one touch with the outside of your boot to control your swivel – and have a dig.
Crucially, you need to drill in both directions, with both feet, to give you the best chance of evading defenders during a match. This is just the ticket.
