Keep ball close and under control.

2v1 in wide area (20 mins)

Instructions

25x20 grid in wide area.

2v1 against a defender. Winger and Full back looking to create an overload in a wide area to create success for the ball carrier.

Run of supporting full back to cause defender to step off and contain winger.

Examples and Scenarios

A) Supporting full back moves around the outside of the ball making an overlapping run. The defender has to back off and contain, allowing time and space for the player on the ball to step inside and get a shot or pass off.

B) Supporting full back moves inside on the underlap. The defender has to go with him as he has moved into a more threatening position closer to the goal. The winger now has space to explode into and find a cross or pass.

Points

Timing the decision making by the winger with the overlap or underlap of the full back.

Mixing up moves to be unpredictable in attack.

Conditions

Timed practice to produce more game realism - opposing player would receive help from team mate after a few seconds - be quick in attack.
