Pass & Move (Creating and Expoliting 2v1 situations) -

Use half a pitch, players split into attackers and defenders

Defender plays ball to an attackers feet. As soon as in play 2nd attacker and defender who played the ball come into play for a 2v1. Can attackers take advantage and score? Attackers are encouraged to pass and move throughout the scenario.

Ensure attackers and defenders are switched

Progression -

Increase to 2v2 or 3v2

Key Points -

As per technical but also encourage good first touch when recieving the pass from the defenders, player without ball must look for space, emphasise importance of speed, communication between the attackers.

Game (25 mins)

Game -

40x30 (or 3G pitch)

2 teams - uneven numbers

Split pitch into 3 with cones or disc markers

Normal game situation but one team has 1 (or more players than the other team). How can they take advantage of this? More space for attackers to move into. Make sure both teams have advantage of exrea players in turn.

Conditions (if required) -

Move back to equal numbers

When a player makes a pass into a different third they must move and follow the ball

Return to even numbers on teams

Key Points -

As before with technical and skill. Encourage plenty of movement and look for creation of 2v 1 situations to exploit
