Become the ultimate goalscorer: Link the play and finish

There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing your striker miss the target after a slick passing move.

 

Rather than haranguing him out on the pitch, make sure he’s ready to convert when the chance comes with this training exercise.

 

This six-station routine from Swansea City’s under-16 coach, Anthony Wright, requires crisp, accurate passing at speed and a cool head in front of goal – just what you need to prize open a back four during a game.
