1. My personal concern in this project is based on demystifying and giving it the value that set pieces actions really have in current football, specifically and more specifically, in corner kicks.
2. Methodical practice during the week studying their articulations, adapting it to each squad is essential in today’s soccer, it seems to me that it is giving the opponent a great advantage not to practice it, whatever the age of the soccer players. It requires a programmed learning in stages.
3. Their training becomes necessary from an early age for two fundamental reasons: 1º The young players must submit to the same regulations as the older ones, where these rules are typified. 2º There is a need to have specialists who effectively solve these situations especially with the football equality that currently exists.
4. Regarding the 1st, I think it is clear that children must know how to take advantage of these situations, since there will be many occasions when they will have to defend or attack a corner kick, etc. Regarding the 2nd, The number of matches that are resolved or routed thanks to the perfect execution of a corner kick is increasing, so it is necessary to have specialized players in these plays.
5. We must banish the false image that the A.B.P. of mechanized actions, which limit the creativity of the player, especially that of the smallest, when what is intended is precisely the opposite, to increase the number of playing possibilities, increase the subject’s discriminatory capacity, as well as improve their attention and concentration, etc.
6. The method of work will be in charge of each coach, taking into account the following points, which will help them improve the teaching and learning of set pieces: 1st It must be continuous and patient work. the real situations of each age. 3rd Take advantage of mistakes made during games to improve what interests them most as coaches. 4th The plays must be easy to understand and execute. They have to be adapted to the virtues of the players. Choose the most appropriate players for each movement. 5th The boys have to stay as short as possible. The move they will defend or attack will be explained to a small group, while the rest of the squad performs another activity (rounds, matches, etc.). Organization of circuit-type work. 6th During the first two or three sessions, each player will be instructed on what to do, stopping the game as many times as deemed appropriate, clarifying any doubts that may arise. (It depends on the age). (Stopping too much can be very harmful at an early age).
7. They are one of the most important set pieces actions. From the defensive section it presents great difficulties, since as in all A.B.P. the initiative is with the attacking team, so the defenders are usually one step behind. In addition, we find the complexity of a lateral shot, very close to our goal, which does not allow us to have control, such as defenses, attackers and the ball at the same time. Either you pay attention to the ball or you pay it to the rival, but it is very difficult for both, and even more so when unmarkings are carried out away from the ball. It is very important to have the functions of each one established, defensively and offensively . Defensively, great concentration is required, no one can relax, and everyone must be prepared to counter-attack if the ball is recovered.
8. atención Maximum attention to the ball, the opponent, and the space to be occupied. The type of marking to be performed must be established. The zone is recommended, or failing that the zone-man combination, since they allow greater control over the ball, the opponent and the most dangerous space for the opponents’ auction. Marking the man has the drawbacks of losing wearing the ball, run and clear towards the own goal and always go two steps behind the opponent.
9. Establishment of the marking, clearance, reject and counterattack positions with names and surnames. The most dangerous finishing areas for our goal must be occupied, generally included between the vertex of the small area closest to the serve and the penalty spot. Departure of the area of all the defenders, when there is a long clearance, to cause the the opponent’s offside. Start at the height of the ball if the clearance is short. In no case should they remain static. Aggressive, expectant, anticipatory attitude. Support of the body on the tips of the feet, to be more explosive. Mastery of arm technique and area play.
10. In the offensive section of corner kicks, we must take advantage of the defensive difficulties mentioned above.`The unchecking and deceitful movements must be carried out by moving away from the ball in the first instance, to then approach, thus complicating the action of the defenders who are forced to pay attention (either to the ball or to the attacker) . The auction locations and the players that will occupy them must be clearly established, as well as the rejection, surveillance and cut-off line of the rival counterattack, if it occurs.
11. It is also advisable to avoid high serves, with little power or very open, since it will facilitate the recovery of the ball by the defenders and the consequent counterattack. In high performance the work of collective coordination: Screens and blocks are make them essential for the creation and occupation of spaces.
12. Quick serve to surprise the opponent. It is the best move. Choosing the players with the highest technical quality for hitting the ball. Choosing the best players technically and tactically to carry out the actions. Having planned simple and varied actions, easy to train and execute. clearly positions and movements of the auction, with name and surnames. The auctions must occur in motion, never static, to take advantage of the initiative that the attack allows. claramente Clearly establish the positions of rejection, with names and surnames. the plays to the different categories and ages. Establishment of play and execution signals.
13. 1º THERE MUST BE SPECIALISTS IN THEIR LAUNCH. 2º THE LAUNCH MUST CONTACT THE SPECIALIST PLAYERS IN THE AIR GAME. KICK OFF CORNER TO SEEK A USE OF THE CREATION AND USE OF CREATED SPACES.
14. In the World Cup in France ‟98, 613 corner kicks were analyzed, of which only 2.28% ended in a goal with this strategy move, so there is a clear increase in the number of strategy plays that ended in a goal in the USA‟ 94, and more and more in subsequent World Cups.
15. In the soccer world cup USA „94 (Marcos), he analyzed the strategy, where 145 goals were scored, of which 39% were strategy. Cabe It is also worth noting the importance of the last third of each game, As for the number of strategy plays that take place, being the last quarter where higher values are reached.
16. In this type of strategy, the search is also carried out for the best options to prevent the opposing team from scoring. For this reason, in recent years, zone defense has been used whenever possible, especially at a high level, in zone-set situations, and particularly in corner kick situations. Many teams, such as Liverpool , Inter Milan, Milan and National Teams, such as the Czech Republic, have chosen, in recent years, the zone defense in corner kick situations.
17. It makes it easier to obtain numerical superiority in the defensive phase, It presents a division of responsibilities between the players, It does not have the danger of grabbing on the shirts, and therefore, the penalty, horaNow everyone plays in zone; and it is very simple to keep the defense in the zone in the corner kick that pass from the zone to the marking to the manNeutralizes the blocks of the opponents
18. The objective, in the defensive phase, is that the ball does not end its course in goal. For this reason, the ball must be marked and not the man to prevent the ball from ending up inside the goal. There are various types of markings in the area of the stopped ball and these will depend on: • The physical characteristics of the players we have • The physical and technical characteristics of the goalkeeper • The goalkeeper’s preference of having 1 or 2 men on the sticks • The coach’s choice to neutralize the strongest opponent finisher.
19. The rule is that each player must take care of the area that exists between him and his closest partner, both frontally and laterally. The ball that passes behind us or passes us must be intercepted by the next partner. compañero The general concept is one that confirms following the ball and its trajectory, and never assuming that the teammate in front of us is going to intercept it.
20. Man on the stick: they need to be very fast, to defend the goal if the goalkeeper leaves their area to clear; 1st line: strong and tall, kilos and centimeters; 2nd line: half height, skilled at clearance and strong one-on-one; 3rd line: technically skilled, quick to avoid the opponent’s game and possible endings of 2nd play.
21. First suit: Often the opponent inserts a player to extend The trajectory of the ball. It is also at the first post where a clearer creation and occupation of spaces is attempted, simulating short serves, for example. Center of the area: Place of action of the strongest opposing auctioneer. Edge of the area : With this scheme, space is freed up for shooters.
22. mayor Most teams perform the combined marking (zonal + man), which for example, allows the location of a player on one of the clubs and another at the vertex of the small area defending the cut, and is accompanied by the placement of players in individual marking on rival attackers who join the auction. The front of the area is always protected by one or two players.
23. In order to obtain a good performance in offensive actions on set pieces, it is necessary, in addition to carrying out a previous study of the players on our team, in terms of the characteristics that our players possess, so that they can be more exploited for the benefit of the whole; it is absolutely precise, to deploy an adequate methodology, which allows us a good assimilation of concepts by the players, so that they perform their functions effectively.
24. The tasks in the corner kicks (both defensive and offensive) must be well organized and that all the members of the team are clear about their functions, that they are known and dominate them; even that they know the functions of their peers.
25. After trying various methods and different methodologies to improve PBLs, I conclude that the best method, in my view, is the one in which the following characteristics are used: Same starting positions. Same movements. Different solutions.
26. I Simplicity factor. When we talk about simplicity we are referring to the meaning of having clear ideas about what has to be done, both individually and collectively. Simplicity, therefore, is not at odds with organization, that is, with giving functions individually to the players so that they can learn their functions to the best of their ability.
27. II Surprise factor. We understand that there are two kinds of surprise actions that can take place during a match. And both can be effective. These two surprising actions are: a / The one that is carried out quickly, without giving time to the team that is against its defensive organization. b / In this section we will focus on those actions in which the movements and functions The players are organized, that is, each player knows their functions and the entire team knows the movements they must carry out – given that they have been trained repeatedly. The opposing team, on the other hand, is unaware of the actions that our team will take. For this simple reason, we will surprise you by means of an elaborate action, trained repeatedly and in which we have various solutions when it comes to putting an adequate end to it.
28. III Initiative factor. In offensive actions at set pieces, the fact that our team takes the initiative of the game becomes an essential factor. For this reason, we must take this factor into account when organizing our offensive actions at set pieces. Because if we are clear about those actions that the team is going to develop, as well as all the possible solutions to them, the advantage that we have will be essential.
29. IV Efficiency factor. It is the factor that we can call the sum of all the factors that we have talked about before, that is, it is the objective that is intended to be achieved. To achieve this, our team must meet the following characteristics : That the team is organized. That it has clarity of ideas, having its functions clear. It has a wide range of solutions. It knows how to take advantage of the initiative. It takes advantage of the characteristics of the players. and repeated trainings of the same.
30. This signal will be determined by each coach for each specific action. With this signal we try to find the adequate coordination of all the movements of the players. Thus, depending on the action that is marked (direct or indirect) the players in their movements will have to accelerate or slow them down; all this, in order to reach the arrival positions at the right time.
31. The different training sessions must be dynamic and attractive. For this, it is necessary to adopt different work models alternated throughout the year. Model 1: Analytical model: Example: – Combined marking in defense: – Defensive orientation work – Timing
32. Matches on reduced ground (gestural assimilation): With statutory goals, where each team resumes play practicing the set-piece action for a corner kick indicated by the coach. Once they assimilate, they chose to and the companions will always be attentive to the possible gestures of the thrower.
33. Contests, to determine which group manages to concede fewer goals defending or scoring more goals attacking the play indicated by the coach, or created by the footballers. Jamos We let the footballers create their plays. We give 1 ‟to organize: 1st group: organize their defense 2nd group organize their attack, If the play ends in a goal, they attack again
34. Competitions, to determine which group manages to concede fewer goals defending or scoring more goals attacking the play indicated by the coach, or created by the soccer players.
35. Video projection, with plays taken from our meetings, trainings, of the T.V.
36. The IMAGINATION of the coach. This is probably the best model because the coach must see the characteristics of the players and must assess what his team most needs, according to his age, quality, deficiencies, etc…

67. The% improvement of the work group is, significant above all with regard to temporality, at the end of the season is where the greatest difference is seen in almost all parameters, if it is true that mid-season, the parameters are Evenly, but many factors come into play. The work is subjective to the exact parameters, since the study of my own team would have to be done by someone else to be more precise. Even so, it is clear that a good methodology in the actions on set pieces, it has a learning that pays off in the long term, depending on the category and age of the players.
68. The result of the Working Group in a youth team are frankly very good statistics. In 38 games, using the methodology explained in this work, he has managed to score 22 goals in corner kicks and has conceded only 3 goals in ABP, we know that these data depend on many factors, but are significant.
