2v1 + cross (20 mins)

Setup:

2 teams

1 GK

Balls behind goal

Activity:

Defender passes ball and applies pressure. First player must pass to wide player and overlap. 2nd player can play overlap or dribble inside to score.

Defense can score in counter goals.

Each team gets 9 balls. Switch attack/defense on every dead ball. If GK gets ball, it's still live.

Coaching Points:

~Drive at near post (and defender) to engage them before playing overlap

~Use overlapper as bait to fake and drive inside

~If playing overlapper, play ball parallel to sideline.

~Get head up and pick out a player on cross from endline.

~Farthest run should ghost in front of central defender. Nearer running should move opposite ball.
