Become the ultimate goalscorer: Link the play and finish

Give defenders the slip with this sharp-shooting drill from the Swansea City academy 

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

 

More after the break

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.
