Possible Coaching Points

Attacking - patience in possession if there is no forward pass. (Particularly in defending third).

Midfield rotation to get on the ball.

Good passing & support.

Fast passes into the striker when it is "on".

Fast transition to attacking third to support the attack.

Defending - Forward player try to make play predictable.

Press hard in midfield to try to win the ball back.

Defensive third try to hold up the striker, watch where the runners are coming from.

Be brave - block shots.
