Sports Photography - what AF mode works best for you ?

Hi,

I assisted a guy yesterday on a football match shoot to gain some experience. I used a Nikon D7200 + 70-300VR which worked pretty well in the main. However i lost a few good images do to the AF system going wrong. I was shooting AF-Continous and 3D Tracking to try and keep focus on the moving players.

Occasionally though it would for some daft reason jump and lock focus on the crowd as in this example

What focus modes have you found work best for you to minimise mistakes like this ?

Thanks in advance,
Mike.

Nikon D7200
