Skill Long passing (30 mins)

The ball starts with the player furthest from the goal

The player plays a 1-2 short pass to his team mate, with defender trying to track his movements.

Once the 1-2 is played, furthest player then plays the ball over the top for the striker to run onto, and a scoring opportunity is presented. The ball is played into space rather than to the player.

If defender catches the attacker, a 1 v 1 is created.

Small goals are for defending player who has recovered the ball to score in, so attacker now becomes defender.
