Soccer Attacking Drills

Soccer Attacking Drills focus on scoring goals by moving the ball forward to create chances. Since scoring goals is the ultimate task in soccer, we should concentrate on game-like activities to develope attacking abilities.

Purpose of Soccer Attacking Drills

Good attacking soccer includes creating space by getting wide as well as being as deep as one possibly can be without being offsides. This space will create an opportunity for their team to exploit the area and move the ball forward. Supporting players must create space and take the proper angles to assist the player and allow for quick combination play to off-balance the defense to get off a shot. Since the ultimate purpose of attacking is to score, attackers should attempt to get behind the defense and finish the attack with a shot on goal.
