Midfield possession and breakout (20 mins)

Set up

Play 5v5 in the coned area in the centre of the pitch.

Aim is to play at least 5 consecutive passes in this area before playing the ball out to the lone forward and then supporting him to try to score in the opposiition goal.

The midfielders break out to overload the defender but also remembering to hold position and not to totally empty the midfield in case play breaks down.

The attacking players have a time limit to try and score

When the midfielders break, the defending midfielders try to track back and make the recovery run.

If the defenders win the ball then their aim is to try to play the ball out and break the halfway line.

Introduce stipulations to the attacking team so they vary the attack, ie attack through the wide channels, try to score via a crosses etc.

Screen 3 (30 mins)

Set up

Finish session with a half pitch game and attack one goal.

The attacking team look to keep possesion in the central third of the pitch and play combinations with each other before looking to play into the final third and into the attacking 3.

Look for overloads in the central third to make it easy to keep possession and then when ball is played forward look to support the attacking player and overload the final third.

However be mindful of not emotying the midfield in case the play breaks down.

If the defenders win the ball then their aim is to break out of defence and break through any of the 3 gates at the halfway line
