Corner ball - Variation 1: Short goalpost
Players A, B, C and D are close to the first goalpost and in front of the goalkeeper. Player E gives a signal to his teammates that he is starting the corner ball variation.
The players in the penalty areas (A, B, C and D) form a block and try not to let any opponent come between them. Player A blocks the goalkeepers path, the players C and D block the remaining opponents, so that player B
can take the header shot as free as possible.
Alternatively, if there is no opponent between player E and the other players, the ball can be played
flat on to the first goalpost.
Corner ball - Variation 2: Flat pass to the penalty arc
Player E kicks the ball. Player A is next to the second goalpost, players B, C and D standing at the penalty spot. Player F is standing next to the first goalpost. Player E gives his teammates a gesture that he is starting the corner ball variation. Player F runs towards player E to clear the space behind him.
Players B, C and D, who are in the centre, run towards the goal. Player A runs from the second goalpost in a bow to the penalty arc. There he
receives a flat pass, which he shoots into the goal.
The three central players B, C and D should block the opponents if necessary, so that player A has
the possibility to use an additional contact when he is getting the ball.
