Focus of this passing pattern is the movement off the ball from the wide players (player C) before they receive the ball and the center mids movement (player B).

1) Player A passes to player B. Player B receives the ball with his left foot and has a touch away from pressure into the space. When player B takes his first touch, Player C checks towards the ball, and makes a diagonal run looking for the through ball.

2)Player D passes to Player E. Player E plays the way he faces and lays it off back to player D in the space. The moment player E lays the ball offf, Player F checks towards the ball, and makes a diagonal run into space. Player D passes to Player F.
