Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 9 vs 5 & 5 vs 2

9 vs 5 & 5 vs 2 (30 mins)

9 vs 5 & 5 vs 2

Grid of 30 X 30 with a 12 X 12 in the middle of it. % red play vs 2 blue in the 12 by 12, when the blue win the ball, they now play with their remaining 7 in the 30 X 30 grid vs the 5 red who are now on defense. When the red win, they need to bring the ball back into the 12 X 12 to play 5 vs 2 vs whichever 2 blue players go in there to defend them.

Coaching Point

Speed of play (limit touches for the blue to 2 touch, talk about shoulder checks and opemning up the space and angles of support)

Transition (easiest time to win the ball back is right when you lose it so pressure the ball and get it back right away

Pressure as a team (the 5 vs 9 have to work as a unit or they will get cut up so work together and close down the space

Open the pitch when you have 9 (don`t let the 5 take away your space, move the ball quick and use the entire space
