AlexJames Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 (edited) I recently played a game against a team that used the same corner routine constantly - ball played to winger lurking on edge of area - who was always free to cross/ shoot. I have used this same routine myself occasionally (assign player to edge of area, set corner to short, but do not have a player set to come short). However I have no idea how to defend against it? I tried - 2 players (maximum allowed) set to edge of area: however both players took up positions away from the opposition winger on the other side of the box Set opposition instruction to man mark player: opposition player still remained unmarked on all future corners Set specific player instructions (my left back) to specifically mark the opposition winger: opposition player still remained unmarked on all future corners. Fortunately I went unpunished this time, but wondering what I missed, and how this can be stopped if encountered in future?
