Objectives

Attacking phase of Defending, once the ball goes over the Goal Line, we play out from the back. It is important we maintain possesion and shape. As it is important to be able to attack directly after winning the ball, so a defending session must have an attacking component

Coaching points

1. Movement of players prior to receiving the ball, look for correct foot, body shape, technical and tactical aspects

2. Passes to break the opposition units and lines

3. Maintain balance when in possession, that is the movement of the players not in possession, always be asking yourself "What if"?, What if they striker loses the ball, what if the midfielder loses the ball..etc

4. Quick and positive decision making
