* MESSI: Head up looking to get into the gaps using small, quick

touches with the Pinky Toe (outside of the foot).

change of direction (12 o'clock to 6 o'clock), ball comes out of your

you, then big touch to accelerate and get your head/eyes up and

attack the space.

NEYMAR he moves the ball from the inside of his right or left foot and roles over with his sole to start the dribble (can we get the players to role and pass.)

Spend a few minutes covering each Foundational Player's characteristics seperately and ensure the players have a good picture of the characteristics during each scenario.

Introduce new caracter if the players are ready and are comftable with the Iniesta.
