Tactic 4: Corners
One player takes the corner and another stays back to cover any possible counter-attacks. This leaves two players to attack the ball at the corner. In general, the opposing team will have four players back defending: the box is likely to be congested. Therefore, the attacking players should start outside the box before making their runs. In this example the ball is drilled in low and hard, and the two attackers switch their positions: the right hand side player runs to the front, and the left hand side player runs to the back. This movement may confuse the defence, allowing the shot from the near post, or a shot or cross from the far post.
