Football Language: Well-worked routine

There are many different types of set pieces in football such as a free-kick a corner or a throw in and teams carefully prepare for them in training before the game. When teams work on these set pieces they work repeatedly on them, over and over again until everyone knows what to do; they know what the routine is. Of course, they do not always work in a game as the opposition can stop or block their routine but when a set piece plan works and a goal is scored we might hear the TV commentator say that the team scored from a well-worked set piece or a well-worked routine.
