8v8 plus server for the attacking team.

Allow play to flow for a couple of minutes. Can blues hit target GK when they win the ball back.

We now coach what happens when the ball goes to red full back. With correct distances we can engage and 1st priority is to get players head down. This allows us to squeeze as a team and the press is on. Can we then keep play predictable. Coach what happens when ball is played back.

Focus on Distances , Communication and trigger points
