Midfielders (15 mins)

Coaching Points:

Midfielders:

-As the Ball is being Played to the Opposition CB, the Two Midfielders can Shuffle over and block spaces. We are preventing the ball being played through us straight to the Strikers. If the opposition midfielders also shuffle over to try to receive the ball, then they can go Touch-Tight to them - This may prevent them being able to receive the ball, or if they do then we can possibly make a tackle and win the ball back or force them to play backwards and not forwards
