Coaching points:

- Check runs (pull defender away to create space behind/inside of them)

- Weight of pass (accuracy and speed)

Drill 1.3 (10 mins)

This progression now adds pressure to the enviroment with active defenders that replace the mannequinns in a 4v3 situation. It is now up to the attackers to form a combination play with the aim of finishing. The squad is divided into two groups; attackers & defenders. After 5 mins swap groups so both get to practice both attacking and defending concepts.

*If the defenders win the ball they can attack any of the two wide goals.

Rotation: Attackers 1-2-3-4 Defenders A-B-C-D

Progression: Add a recovering defender (A) to create a 4v4 and put attackers under pressure from behind.

Coaching Points:

- Movement (create space)

- Physicality (protection of the ball)

- Type of pass (to feet, through ball to run onto)

- Decision making (dribble/pass/shoot)

Game Related Practice (15 mins)

Squad is split into two groups; attackers & defenders. Game starts off 2v1 in the favour of the attackers. Each time the ball is dead, both groups bring on an extra player until all players are on and play goes on for 7 minutes and then the groups change over. Each time the ball goes dead, the attacking team's goalkeeper starts off the next attack. Offisides apply only to the attacking team.

Coaching points:

- Fast break attack (whilst low number of defenders)

- Movement (create spaces/openings)

- Build up play (look to go forward as much as possible)

- Finishing (look to shoot when opportunity arises)

- Defending (delay attack/press high/recovery runs)
