1v1 & 2v2 Duel (15 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop ball control, dribbling, feints and change of direction in a 1v1 and 2v2 duel.

Description

In a area of 20x15 yards the players compete in 1v1 and 2v2 situations.

The coach plays a ball to the centre of the pitch. The first player to reach the ball becomes the attacker and aims to score in 1 of the 2 goals.

If the defender manages to tackle or intercept the ball he becomes the attacker.

The use of the 2 goals in this exercise increases the options for changes in direction and different feints.

Coaching Points

The attacker needs to use his body as a barrier between the defender and the ball to protecting it.

The attacker needs to keep the ball close to their feet using feints and quick change of direction when needed to get away and score.
