Attacking Corners: Far Post
It’s not a type of corner which many people use anymore, but it can still prove to be very effective if you have the right players to use it with. Tall players with plenty of aerial ability would enjoy this style of corner more, as your corner taker whips in a high ball towards the far post where it can be attacked. Let’s look at how I set this one up.
Once again, we presume the two central defenders are the best at winning headers and they occupy the key area; the far post in this case. The striker challenges the keeper in case the ball ends up in travelling towards the goalkeeper’s immediate area. One player stands beside the near post to pull away one of the opposition’s defenders from the key area, thus creating more space at the far post. As before, we have one player attacking from deep and three going forward without specific instructions in order to attack the ball/attract opposition defenders. Once again, two players stay back if needed to cover our bases.
