Analysis: Dealing with Crosses from Open Play
The initial set up is something delivered on FA goalkeeping courses. I used it to zone in on Kai’s focus on the flight of the ball, so I can judge his engagement. The session then is adapted, to focus specifically on positioning, so that his engagement becomes clear and consistent.
As well as giving goalkeepers a better understanding of dealing with crosses, this video is also aimed at improving coaches' knowledge. The team structure when defending crosses should be built around the strengths of the goalkeeper, in order to allow them to be in a position of strength, when dealing with crosses.
