Phase of Play - Defending (high press)

Organisation

Start with an open game (always starts with GK)

Attacking team score in small goals

Defending team score normally

Key Tech

9 starting position (show one way - block off switch pass)

Pressure on ball - always showing outside - make it predictable

Body shape, angle of closing down

One of MF may press CB on ball - MF shift across leaving opposite MF their only option

Ball down one side, other side tuck in - 7/11 become LW or RW in a 4

9 sets the tempo of the press - if he sprints and goes after a CB - everyone lock on and go together
