    • 4,5,9, make attacking runs into the back of the 6.
    • 3 fakes to play long and deep and instead cuts the ball out to player 2 (right back).
    • 2 either strikes the ball first time low or head-height at the far post.  Can take a touch to settle the ball back if necessary.  Should be with pace.
    • 4,5,9 try to redirect if necessary and finish from close range.
    • 11 holds the eadge of the area for rebounds and attempted clearances.
